CRU Heretaunga Trial Trio

Hawke's Bay

Kick start your Smith & Sheth journey with a Heretaunga trio featuring the CRU Heretaunga Albariño, Heretaunga Chardonnay and Heretaunga Syrah, presented in a three-bottle box with Smith & Sheth branded sleeve.

2022 Heretaunga Albariño
Straw coloured with refreshing lime citrus peel, ripe peach, and mandarin characters.  Flavours of honeysuckle and stonefruit mingle with a subtle saltiness that provides a savoury taste to the wine. Rich and full bodied yet fresh with mouthwatering crisp salivating acidity giving great balance, length and structure.

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 Heretaunga Syrah
Deep ruby red colour. Aromas of ripe blackberry, plum, red liquorice, black pepper and red flowers show beautifully. The palate is medium to full bodied with flavours of ripe black fruits, raspberry, anise, pepper, thyme and a lovely thread of vanilla and cedar from oak and fruit. The finish is long with a lovely savoury twist.
