GOLD MEDAL | New Zealand Royal Easter Show 2019
A glorious example of modern Hawkes Bay Chardonnay. Full bodied. A powerful statement. Every vintage always cleans up at the awards and this 2017 is clearly no exception. Sublime.
The winery writes "In its youth this concentrated wine is pale in the glass and displays delicate and complex aromas of white fleshed stone fruit, flowers, biscuit and hazelnut. Intricate barrel fermentation influences meld with stone fruit and acidity on the palate, forming a refined marriage of style and length. Cellar this wine with confidence for up to 8 years from vintage."
