CRU Chardonnay Duo

CRU Chardonnay Duo

Hawke's Bay

A Chardonnay indulgence! This beautiful gift box dressed with a Smith & Sheth branded sleeve ready for gifting included our delicious CRU Heretaunga Chardonnay and Grand CRU Howell Vineyard Chardonnay.

2020 Heretaunga Chardonnay
Bright pale straw colour with lemon tinges. Lovely fresh aromas of white fleshed peach, freshly roasted cashews and a hint of toasted brioche. The palate is immediately open with ripe stonefruit and confit lemon flavours surrounded by a lovely creamy texture, a hint of fine oak, finishing long with a savoury, flinty twist. Great cellaring potential.

2020 Howell Vineyard Chardonnay
Pale lemon colour. Complex yet quite discrete aromas of ripe nectarine, straw, fresh brioche and cashew nuts prevail. The palate is similarly discrete to start then grows to show the delicious nectarine, ripe citrus, toast and savoury nuttiness of this vineyard, complimented by a lovely creamy texture and seam of fresh lemon zest to finish. Great cellaring potential.
