4.5 STARS | Cameron Douglas, MS.
90/100 | Jane Skilton.
The third release of what must be considered as New Zealand's finest unoaked Chardonnay - and a step up from Virgin 2013 that we considered the benchmark to this point.
With fruit sourced from the legendary Riflemans vineyard, it's a gamechanger style and hands down the finest unoaked New Zealand Chardonnay we have ever tried.
If you like grilled or panfried seafood, Sacred Hill Virgin Chardonnay is the best wine match on the planet. Grab a six pack, throw some snapper in the pan, and prepare to wax lyrical. You'll be thanking us later - that's for sure.
Cameron Douglas, MS writes "Pure expression of fruit with aromas of sweet white and yellow peach, apple and meyer lemon, a floral suggestions adds depth and complexity to an already elegant bouquet. On the palate - delicious! - firm, crisp, dry and packed with energy. The white stone fruit flavours dominate with mineral and floral notes. With great balance and length a must-try wine."
