Pask Gimblett Gravels Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay 2016

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 23-Jun-2018
Bright straw-yellow colour with pale golden tints, lighter on the edge. The nose is soft with genttly concentrated aromas of white stonefruits and a subtle layering of flinty lees, unfolding a suggestion of herbs. This is fresh, clean and straightforward. Medium-bodied, the palate has an elegant heart with modestly concentrated flavours of white stonefruits entwined with flinty lees detail. The mouthfeel has freshness with good acidity, and the wine flows along a light-textured line leading to an uncomplicated, clean, stonefruited finish. This is an uncomplicated Chardonnay with modest stonefruit and flint notes and a fresh palate. Serve as an aperitif, with seafood and poultry over the next 2+ years. Fruit predominantly from the ‘Settlement 1 and 2’ vineyards fermented in seasoned barrels and puncheons to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 12 months on lees with batonnage, avoiding MLF. 1,400 cases made. 16.5/20 Jun 2018 RRP $22.00
