Lovely 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 complex example of Hawkes Bay Chardonnay with a taut, slightly reductive mineral palate that is softened with layers of lemon cream, semi ripe stonefruit flavours and toasty oak.

Description
Raymond Chan writes "Medium-full bodied, the palate has intense and deep flavours of white stonefruits melded with firm gunflint and minerally reductive complexities along with nutty and toasty oak. The fruit richness is enhanced by some rounded barrel-ferment textures, but cut by crisp acidity. The gunflint notes unfold to reveal matchstick notes and toasty oak, and the flavours carry to a very long and sustained finish. This is a deep and concentrated Chardonnay with stonefruit and complexing gunflint flavours with some barrel-ferment richness, nutty and toasty detail and a fresh mouthfeel. "
