Hopesgrove Chardonnay 2016

(1)
Hawkes Bay, New Zealand

FIVE STARS 18.5/20 | Raymond Chan
FIVE STARS 93/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

A lovely example of quality barrel fermented Hawkes Bay Chardonnay that is showing the benefits of some bottle age. The 2016 is a richly flavoured wine with nice mealy characters that are supported by tangy stone fruits and lemon cream flavours.

This wine is famous in Hawkes Bay for being the top selling Chardonnay at Deliciosa - a wine focussed restaurant that has won the region's best wine list at the Hospitality awards multiple times. Enough said.

Tasting Notes

Raymond Chan writes "Bright, even, light golden-yellow colour with some depth, paler edged. The nose is fresh and firm with solid and robust aromas of ripe yellow stonefruits and citrus fruit entwined with creamy barrel-ferment and nutty oak unfolding a little toast. The aromatics form a positive core with depth. Medium-full bodied, the palate has bold and up-front flavours of sweetly ripe tropical fruit and stonefruits, with savoury citrus fruit forming a fulsome heart. The flavours are mouthfilling and near robust, with balancing creamy and nutty oak and fresh, lacy acidity. The wine has good drive and carries to a long finish. This is a fulsome and robust Chardonnay with stonefruit, citrus fruit and tropical fruit , creamy and nutty oak on a palate with power and freshness."

Sam Kim writes "A stylish chardonnay, the bouquet shows ripe nectarine, mandarin, oatmeal, vanilla and cedar characters, leading to a succulent palate that is rounded and expansive. It is textural and mouthfilling, and offers youthful charm and engaging complexity, finishing long and creamy."
