Babich Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay 2014

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 03-Feb-2015
An un-oaked Chardonnay, the fruit from the company’s two Hawke’s Bay vineyards, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.5% alc. and 4.0 g/L RS. Bright, even straw-yellow colour with light golden hues, pale on rim. This has a light, fresh and tightly restrained nose with uncomplicated yellow stonefruit aromas, along with some melon nuances. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, clean and clear, straightforward stonefruit and citrus fruit flavours feature on the front palate. This is up-front and elegant in presentation. The mouthfeel is refreshing and crisp, and light textures guide the flow. The wine carries to a light, dry finish with stonefruit notes. This is a clean, crisp, stonefruit flavoured, unoaked Chardonnay. Serve as an aperitif, with canapes and antipasto over the next 2-3 years. 16.5/20 Jan 2015 RRP $22.00
