Description

Bilancia winemaker Warren Gibson is passionate about making Chardonnay and preaching its virtues. He has a huge depth of understanding of this greatest of all white grapes, and regularly talks of his Damascene moment when judging a wine show that made him want to change the way he made Chardonnay. This 2017 shows off his experience and the quality of vintage hugely, combining the purity of fruit that Hawke's Bay does so well with the seductive creaminess of malolactic ferment, judicious oak and extended lees aging. A gorgeously rich and textural Chardonnay, it should be at its best between now and 2023.

Smells

A hint of croissant, subtle struck match, vanilla, peach and almond.

Tastes

Full flavoured and weighted with stone fruit, but with a creamy texture driving to a refreshing lemon zest finish, the wine is just so well balanced it owns your palate. Its strong mouth feel ensures it will magnify in personality with roasted pork and poultry!
