Selected in the Hawkes Bay Chardonnay dozen 2020
Considering the other 11 bottles were priced a lot higher than this gem. It makes for some very pleasant purchasing.
"A melange of vanilla, cream, sweet lemon, grapefruit, hazelnut, and subtle oak. This is a big, rich Chardonnay. It has weight, sweet fruit, beautiful texture and length." Winery notes
"Wonderfully composed and stylish, the wine shows nectarine, fig, vanilla and roasted cashew notes on the nose, followed by a concentrated palate displaying excellent weight and depth. It’s richly textured and complex with an impressively long delectable finish. At its best: now to 2025." 5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, January 2021
