4.5 STARS 91/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
Classic Hawkes Bay Chardonnay from this elite winemaking team. The upfront palate is fruit driven with vibrant and juicy acidity leaving a lingering finish to compliment the lemon curd and brulee creaminess. Showstopper in our eyes.
Sam Kim writes "Chardonnay '17 - The wine is attractively fruited and beautifully fragrant with ripe stone, rock-melon, vanilla and hazelnut characters. The palate is succulent and expansive, displaying lovely mid palate weight and creamy mouthfeel, finishing ling and comforting. Wonderfully balanced and flavorsome, while remaining elegant and poised."

A great little brother to Te Mata Elston Chardonnay. Excellent price.
