4.5 STARS 91/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit "long and attractive".
Medium-bodied Chardonnay vinted in a clean, vibrant style with mineral hints and finely integrated oak. Partial barrel-ferment adds complexity and depth. This classy, satisfying Chardonnay is a perfect style for those looking for a middleweight option focussed on the pure stonefruit flavours Hawke's Bay is famous for.
Sam Kim writes "91pts. It's beautifully ripe and elegantly complex on the nose showing white flesh peach, fig, nougat and roasted cashew aromas, followed by a splendidly rounded palate displaying fine texture and juicy fruit flavours combined with elegant oak undertone, finishing long and attractive".
The winery writes "This elegant chardonnay is blended from a special selection of wines; a portion which were barrel fermented in French oak barrels. The wine shows rich fruit and integrated oak aromas from ageing on lees for 15 months. The palate is generous and full with a fine persistent finish."
A great everyday Chardonnay
Great wine even better price!
