PREMIUM CHARDONNAY SUPERDEAL
GOLD MEDAL | NZIWS 2022
This famous Reserve label has always been an excellent example of fine, barrel-fermented Hawke's Bay Chardonnay and this Gold Medal 2020 release has been further lees-aged for 10 months in French oak barriques to bring even more weight and texture to the party. A powerful nose of ripe peach, apricot and French oak promises much and the palate fulfils those flavours with buttery, creamy mouthfeel and more oak spice.
The 2020 is now entering its peak drinking window, and will continue to develop over the coming 3 years. It's easily our favourite wine in the Sileni portfolio and now excellent value with the Advintage Advantage.
The winery writes "Rich aromas of ripe stone fruits and hazelnuts. The palate is textured and full with pleasing layers of complexity. Fine acidity adds length and balance. Enjoy with a creamy pasta, seafood chowder or with smoked salmon.”
