Sacred Hill

Sacred Hill 'Virgin' Chardonnay Hawke's Bay 2011
(Rifleman's Vineyard Fruit. 12 % abv. Zero Oak)
Nose: Pure fruits expressions of apple, pear and stone fruits with a lees undertone. Lifted floral notes and citrus.  
92 Points

Palate: Dry with a taut and focused palate; medium++ acidity, citrus fruits of sweet and ripe lemon, grape fruit peel and stone fruit flavors. A long finish, pristine and almost perfect with a mineral under-currant. The texture of this wine is an important feature - seamless and silky with taut youthful highlights. A wine destined to be on many wine lists and in quite a few cellars too I expect.
5 Stars (92 Points)
