This is one of our favorite expressions of coastal Hawkes Bay Chardonnay. Gorgeous wine with lovely palate weight, the 2018 balances the need for generosity and power with the perfect degree of restraint. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Sam Kim writes "It’s gorgeously complex and inviting on the nose showing golden peach, vanilla, lemon peel and roasted hazelnut characters. The palate displays excellent weight and intensity, together with creamy texture and bright acidity, making it wonderfully harmonious and flavoursome."
The Wine Writer writes "Concentrated flavours of white fleshed stone fruit and citrus are found on the palate and are joined by lifted acidity and a very long oak spiced finish."
