Description

This Master East Coast winemaker has taken his incredibly popular Duck Point Chardonnay to new fruit weight levels with the move to 100% Hawke's Bay fruit. The excellent 2016 Chardonnay vintage also added plenty to this release. His long-term grower relationships ensure access to great fruit... and he has treated this Hawke's Bay fruit to generous oak and lees stirring to deliver that creamy, lightly toasty and buttery body of flavour.

Smells

Soft, mellow aromas of Golden peach, nectarine, subtle citrus, roasted nuts and biscuit.

Tastes

Fuller and richer than ever... the palate has definitive stone fruits set in a creamy texture with vanilla tinged butter and a hint of butterscotch adding to its uncommon generosity relative to price... a hint of biscuit and roasted nut add more charm. Enjoy often (very doable at the price) as a young Chardonnay.
