90/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
Medium-bodied Chardonnay vinted in a clean, vibrant style with mineral hints and finely integrated oak. This classy, satisfying Chardonnay is a perfect style for those looking for a middleweight option focused on the pure stonefruit flavours Hawke's Bay is famous for.
Sam Kim, Wine Orbit writes "It's charming and elegantly expressed on the nose with white flesh stone fruit, fig, subtle vanilla and hazelnut aromas, followed by a silky-smooth palate offering succulent fruit flavours with silky texture and refreshing acidity."
The winery writes "This VS Chardonnay is youthful and fragrant, the appealing bouquet shows ripe stone fruit, apple, rock melon and subtle vanilla characters. Hints of citrus with subtle vanilla and toasty notes. The palate is soft and textural with rich, buttery and juicy stonefruit flavours. The oak is well-integrated with brioche and grilled peach characters."
A great everyday Chardonnay
Great wine even better price!
