Smith and Sheth CRU Heretaunga Chardonnay 2016

Hawkes Bay, New Zealand
95/100

18.5/20 FIVE STARS | Raymond Chan.
95/110 FIVE STARS | Sam Kim

Exciting premium Hawkes Bay Chardonnay from Steve Smith MW - the man who drove the winemaking programme for Craggy Range for many years. Now producing wine under his own banner with American tech billionaire Brian Sheth, he is making some truly exciting variations on the classic New Zealand varietals and this is a wonderful example of modern Hawkes Bay Chardonnay.

Sourced from handpicked Bridge Pa triangle fruit this is the funkiest of the 3 current releases with more reductive gun smoke / struck match on show than the other Smith and Sheth Chardonnays. It's the tightest too  - tautly wound with a linear palate of citrus and stonefruits. One for the cellar.

Description
Raymond Chan writes "Full-bodied, the palate has bright and vibrant flavours of white stonefruits and citrus fruit forming a taut core. The fruit intermingles with refined gunflint reduction and nutty oak complexities. The mouthfeel is smooth-flowing and slippery, and energised by fresh, lacy acidity. The palate has an elegantly proportioned line with drive and tension that carries to a long, crisp finish. Full and concentrated on the nose, this is a taut but vibrant and fine-flowing Chardonnay with stonefruit, gunflint and nutty flavours on a crisp palate. "
