Description

To future proof growing demand, plus continue to evolve the quality and style of this outstanding sub $20 Chardonnay the Brajkovich family bought a prized, mature vineyard in Rays Road, Raukawa in the Hawke's Bay. Incredibly they maintain the tradition of 100% handpicked fruit, 100% MLF with over 80% in French Oak all contributing to the body and richness of this remarkable value Chardonnay. The new addition of a sizable component of Hawke's Bay fruit has given the wine noticeable increase in mid-palate weight with predominant stone fruit presence. The judicious fermentation of 20% in tank gives it a superb Chablis like freshness. What a magnificent Chardonnay value and experience for the modest price.

Smells

Fragrant nose of apricots, nectarines, roasted nuts and subtle mineral notes.

Tastes

Generous and richly fruited on the palate, there is subtle oak influence but lots of biscuity lees notes and lightly creamy and fresh finish. Classic and stylish, it's ready to drink now or over the next 3+ years.
