Black Barn ‘Reserve’ Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay 2012

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 01-Jul-2014
Very pale straw colour. The bouquet is very contemporary with tight and intense aromas of white stonefruits complexed by sulphide flinty reduction, the fruit and gunflint integrated and supported by nutty oak and nuances of toast. Beautifully concentrated and elegant, the sweet citrussy fruit forms a fine, firm and packed core. Layers of flinty detail, nuts, oak and stonefruits intermingle and carried with excellent energy. The palate is very finely textured, carrying through to a long, lingering, dry finish with plenty of oak toastiness. Great class and complexity. 100 dozen made. 19.5-/20 Jun 2014 RRP $45.95
