Stonecroft ‘Old Vine’ Gimblett Gravels Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay 2010

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 27-Feb-2012
Fruit from Mere Road, aged in 50% new French oak for 11 months with 50% MLF. Light straw-yellow with golden hues, this has density and power on bouquet with intense aromas of citrus and stonefruit and distinct oak toast. Full-bodied, rich and with ripe flavours of yellow stonefruit, mealy, nutty layers and exotic fruits emerge with a lusciousness. The oaking is powerful, but interwoven harmoniously with the fruit. Some alcohol body and warmth adds to the richness. A wine with richness, depth and a powerful finish. Keep for 4-5+ years.  Feb 2012  RRP $45.00
