Stonecroft ‘Old Vine’ Gimblett Gravels Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay 2009

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 27-Feb-2012
Fruit from the Mere Road site, aged 11 months in new and seasoned oak with 25% MLF. Light straw-yellow with golden hues, this has a fully-packed and dense nose with dry stonefruits along with some nutty secondary complexities beginning to appear. Full-bodied with warmth and power, this is a full, rounded style, open in presentation with strong nutty flavours prominent. The acidity is restrained, resulting in a round, dry finish. This is a fulsome wine, with presence, with ripeness, now beginning to show some nuances of development.  Feb 2012  RRP $45.00
