Babich Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay 2016

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 10-Apr-2017
Bright, full, even straw-yellow colour with lemon-green hues, pale edged. The nose is fresh and up-front with uncomplicated aromas of yellow stonefruits and suggestions of nutty lees an mineral elements. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has bright and moderately rich flavours of yellow stonefruits along with subtle nutty and mineral elements. The wine has good body and presence with soft textures and light, refreshing acidity which carry the palate to a light, clean, dry finish. This is a fresh, bright and up-front, uncomplicated, unwooded Chardonnay with flavours of yellow stonefruits and a clean dry finish. Serve as an aperitif and with seafood and poultry dishes over the next 2-3 years. Fruit from the company’s two Hawke’s Bay vineyards, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.0% alc. and 2.0 g/L RS, the wine bottled without oak contact. 16.5-/20 Apr 2017 RRP $19.95
