91 Points Sam Kim - Wine Orbit
Attractively ripe and elegantly fragrant , our Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay offers delightful drinking. A delicious wine with a combination of ripe yellow stone fruit, apricot and roasted nut characters and a creamy, supple mouthfeel.
The parcels of fruit were harvested and gently pressed on arrival to the winery. The juice as the cold settled before being inoculated with selected yeasts to undergo controlled fermentation in a mix of tanks and barrels. Approximately 50% of the parcels went through malolactic fermentation to add complexity and add to the creamy mouthfeel. Following fermentation the wine was aged on full lees prior to blending, stabilization, filtering and bottling.
t's fabulously fruited and inviting on the nose showing ripe peach, mango, vanilla and roasted hazelnut characters with a hint of brioche complexity. The palate is beautifully weighted and rounded, displaying bright fruit flavours together with elegant oak nuances, finishing long and creamy. At its best: now to 2023. Score - 91.
