Tony Bish Heartwood Chardonnay 2019, Hawke’s Bay

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 11-Jun-2020
Bright, medium yellow with some depth and a golden hue. Perfume of white florals, oak and spices fill the glass with grace and style; entwined with lemon sherbet, citrus peels, underlying a subtle note of roasted chestnut. Medium-bodied, mouthwatering acidity with a softness carries lemon sherbet, and spicy oak nuances flow with strength and power; unveiling citrus peels, subtle nuttiness and white florals. Prickly spices sharpened the mouthfeel, alongside a smooth and fine phenolic texture, leads to a lingering fresh finish. This is an elegant and perfumed Chardonnay with pure attractions, purity of the fruit shines through with a smooth and fine phenolic texture line, freshen by lively acidity. Match with grilled seafood and fowl over the next 5+ years. Mendoza clone, from Bridge Pa Triangle vineyards. Handpicked, 100% barrel-fermented to 13.5% alc. Aged in 100% Taransaud French oak barriques, 30% new. Full MLF. 19/20pts June 2020 RRP $35
