2016 Elephant Hill Reserve Chardonnay

Beautifully rich palate with mineral lift and elegance. The Burgundians would envy us being able to drink Chardonnay of such superb quality for seemingly little money by comparison.

Description

Elephant Hill's Reserve 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 generous and of the highest quality, focusing more on intensity and richness of fruit and elegant 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. Drink now or hold through 2023+

Smells

Toasty oak and subtle smoky notes with pristine peach, grapefruit and nectarine.

Tastes

Very rich and weighty in the mouth, the mineral elegance further underpins the biscuity lees and toasty French Oak. Immaculately balanced and highly complex, this is an extremely elegant, bolder, Burgundian style of Chardonnay that rates with the very finest from Hawke's Bay.

We taste, rate & guarantee every wine we sell.
