Sacred Hill ‘Riflemans’ Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay 2007

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 31-Jul-2014
A favourite of Tony Bish. Bright lemony straw-yellow colour. Initially quite closed and densely packed with some locked in reduction savouriness on nose. Gradually opening up with breadth, volume and depth, with complex savoury dark yellow citrus and yellow stonefruit aromas, infused with nutty and toasty notes. Some reduction still, but adding to the layers of interest. A wine of mouthfeel and weight, with noticeable textures, the fruit becoming drier, but with a full range of nutty, toasty flavours, a little oxidative secondary and tertiary development opening up in the glass. Drinking now, based on this bottle. 18.5+/20 Jul 2014 RRP $N/A
