Strongly varietal bouquet with aromas of fresh lemon, apple blossom and mild tropical fruits; a soft oak spice layer adds a layer of texture as well as harmony and mild complexity. Crisp, dry, fruity and mildly savory with flavors of citrus, apple and light tropical fruit; highish acidity and a long finish.
Stonecroft Gimblett Gravels Hawke's Bay Chardonnay 2014
Ripe, clean, fresh and inviting bouquet of Chardonnay with some pure fruit expressions of fresh peach, apple and grape fruit; mild+ oak and moderate+ complexity. Quite a youthful wine on palate with grape fruit, lemon and crisp apple bites; dry, medium+ weight and acidity, again mild+ oak with a gentle woody spice and vanilla note. Though youthful - a balanced wine with good length.
