Esk Valley

Esk Valley Chardonnay 2014 Hawke's Bay
Classic bouquet of Hawke's Bay Chardonnay with vibrant and forward suggestions of oak and roasted stone fruits together - peach and vanilla, apple and toasted wood; a light yet distinctive layer of stone based mineral and a youthful medium+ complexity overall. On the palate - full-bodied , bold and dry; flavors of roasted sweet peach and nectarine, apple and raw brown sugar, a light caramelised/toasty oak moment and medium+ acidity; the wine has bite and grip  - it's young - and a little wood tannin adds texture and length. Overall a lovely wine in its prime with a long finish.
92 Points
