2014 Bilancia Chardonnay

Description

Just recently we read a detailed communication from Bilancia winemaker Warren Gibson, educating his distributors on his thoughts on Chardonnay. It showed the depth of his passion and understanding of this greatest of all white grapes, and told of his Damascene moment when judging a wine show that made him want to change the way he made Chardonnay. This 2014 wine shows the sum total of his experience very well, we would contend that it is the best one he has yet made, mingling the purity of fruit that Hawke's Bay does so well with the fatness and creaminess of malo and extended lees aging. A gorgeous Chardonnay with a texture to die for, it should be at its best between now and 2022.

Smells

A hint of freshly baked pastry, with vanilla, peach and almond.

Tastes

Full flavoured and weighty but with a creamy texture driving a refreshing finish, the wine is just so well balanced it brings a tear to your eye. A great year from all reports for Hawkes Bay Chardonnay and Bilancia have knocked this one out of the park!
