2019 Howell Vineyard ChardonnayHawke's Bay
$ 48.00 NZD $ 60.00 NZD
One hundred percent barrique fermented old vine Chardonnay from the Howell Vineyard.
Pale lemon colour with hints of straw. Lovely aromas of fresh white peach, fresh cashew nut, toasted brioche and crystallised lemon. Complex and complete. The palate is generous and open with delicious flavours of grilled peach, vanilla bean, crunchy toasted oats alongside a savoury saline lemon pith character that provides length and composure. Drink thru to 2026.

A serious chardonnay with cooked apple, dried lemon, light cheese and a hint of yoghurt. Full-bodied and creamy-textured with a long flavourful finish. Lovely texture and length.
