This medium weight Hawke's Bay Chardonnay shows classic regional stonefruit and citrus flavours with creamy mouthfeel with lingering flavours of tangy lemon butter. It's a refined and vibrant style where oak plays a fine support role but never tries to overtake proceedings.
The winery writes "The 2020 Stone Paddock Chardonnay is a lightly oaked wine. Showing ripe tropical fruit of lychee, cantaloupe, candied pineapple, peach aromas and hints of nougat. The gentle influence of battonage accentuates the sweet melon and peach flavours, the texture is creamy and luscious with a full, rich finish."
