From the Winemaker…
Pale lime to pale straw. Subtle, yet definitive aromas of lime zest and grapefruit pulp with hints of brioche and fresh cashews. The palate has saline acidity that carries the citrus notes from nose to mouth. The savoury complexity provides the perfect counter-point for a Chardonnay that truly reflects its maritime origins.
Enjoy with Comté cheese, truffle pasta, smashed pea-pesto on freshly toasted sourdough
Cellaring 1-4 years from vintage
Why we like it…
Fabulous Hawkes Bay Chardonnay – finely structured with subtle fresh flavours of grapefruit, white peach, wet stone and a mouthwatering saltiness
