2015 Elephant Hill Reserve Chardonnay

Extremely high quality in a unique and fresh style

Wine Orbit 5 Stars Raymond Chan 19/20

Description

Elephant Hill's most premium Chardonnay is crafted in an elegant but highly concentrated style from Clones 15 and 95 grown on their Te Awanga coastal vineyard. Not a fat or creamy style, it is nevertheless of the highest quality, focusing more on intensity and richness of fruit and significant mineral influence. 12 months in 30% new French oak, with only 20% of the wine going through MLF, which keeps the acidity bright and energetic.

Smells

Toasty oak and flinty gunsmoke notes with pristine peach, grapefruit and nectarine.

Tastes

Very rich and weighty in the mouth, the flinty, mineral notes combine nicely with a hint of biscuity lees and toasty French Oak. Immaculately balanced and highly complex, this is an extremely elegant, almost Old World style of Chardonnay that rates up with the very finest in the Hawke's Bay.
