Babich ‘Lone Tree’ Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay 2009

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 24-Jun-2011
Chardonnay fruit from Hawke's Bay cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.5% alc. and 3.1 g/L rs and bottled without any oak contact. Bright straw-yellow colour with some golden hues, the bouquet is full, open and broad with ripe tropical fruits, apricots and peaches, quite lifted and bright. Medium full-bodied, the palate has tight, but lush, uncomplicated flavours of citrus fruits and apricots. There is good intensity and drive, with acidity carrying through to a soft, textured, drying finish. Serve with antipasto, seafood and poultry over the next 2-3 years. 16.5/20 Jun 2011 RRP $15.00
