Babich Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay 2017

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 01-Apr-2018
Bright straw-yellow colour with pale green-gold hues, lighter edged. The nose is fresh and light with elegant aromas of bright white stonefruits and citrus fruit, along with herbal elements. This is refreshing, clear and focussed, quite pure and uncomplicated. Dry to taste and light-medium bodied, the palate has fresh, clean and uncomplicated flavours of white stionefruits and some citrus fruit notes. The fruit is pure in expression with focus and an elegant core, and the wine is enlivened by fresh acidity. The wine flows with some energy and tension to a light, dry finish. This is a clean, pure, focussed but uncomplicated Chardonnay on a fresh palate. Serve as an aperitif and with seafood over the next 2 years. Hawke’s Bay fruit, clones 15, 6 and 5, fermented in stainless-steel to 13.0% alc. and 4 g/L RS, the wine undergoing 15% MLF. 16.5/20 Apr 2018 RRP $19.95
