Elston 2022 is very clearly in the form of its life and set to outperform our already high expectations. Vibrant, fresh and bursting with stone fruit / citrus notes, it carries perfectly pitched barrel-ferment and malolactic characters through to the palate. Sensational.
The winery writes "Glowing a brilliant lemon-gold in the glass, Elston Chardonay ’22 overflows with ripe citrus, fresh brioche, and grilled hazelnuts. On the palate an impressive intensity of ripe nectarine and grilled lemon builds upon soft creamy nougat notes, adding a vibrant acidity, balance and focus. With exceptional length, freshness, purity, and a complex interplay of fruit and savoury notes, Elston Chardonay ’22 is expressive and moreish – a remarkable embodiment of its terroir that exemplifies the quintessential qualities of this classic Hawke’s Bay chardonnay."
