Čuvar Iris Collection Chardonnay 2022, Hawke’s Bay

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 10-Apr-2024
Bright, even, pale yellow with a gold sheen. The nose is elegantly expressed with aromas of citrus, stonefruit, floral and hazelnut. Full-bodied, aromas of lemon, lemon curd and peach entwined with white flora, lightly roasted hazelnut and delicate spice. Toasty spice and hazelnuts are integrated into a creamy mouthfeel. Lacy acidity lingers with stony-mineral-textured phenolics to a lengthy, elegant closing. Match with prawns and poultry over the next 3-5 years. Fruit from Čuvar Terraces Vineyard in Bayview, 30% tank fermented, then moved to barrel and 100% barrel aged, 12.7% alc. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Apr 2024 RRP $29.99
