2018 Mangatahi ChardonnayHawke's Bay
One hundred percent barrique fermented old vine Chardonnay from Mangatahi.
Straw colour. Fresh and vibrant with grapefruit, melon, and citrus fruit on the nose with complexing nutty, cashew notes. A savoury, lush and full palate with balancing acidity and tension. Immediately appealing as a young wine but with an obvious ability to age for 5+ years.
~ 96 Points/5 Stars ~
Gorgeously fruited and immensely appealing, the bouquet shows golden peach, nougat, cedar, and brioche characters, followed by a succulent palate that is mouth-filling and expansive. Gracefully opulent yet firmly structured with an extremely long sophisticated finish. At its best: 2022 to 2030.
