2018 CRU Howell Vineyard Chardonnay

Hawke's Bay

Vibrant pale straw colour. Ripe fruits with citrus, hazelnut and cashew notes. A complex, lush and full palate with balancing acidity and tension. Immediately attractive and with many years ahead. Creamy, lingering and long.

100% hand harvested fruit from 20-year-old established vines that are dry farmed. Soil is silty loam over gravel with some limestone influence.
