Description

One of the few wines in NZ to be known by just one name - Riflemans - this Chardonnay has been making up for lost time after missing 2 vintages in 2011 and 2012 due to poor vintage conditions. Four vintages in a row from 2013 through 2016 have established the label as a modern-day legend, with Tony Bish's mastery of the grape beyond question. Incredibly complex and generous yet tight and very focused, it's going to be a special pleasure experiencing this wine evolving in your cellar.

Smells

The essence of peach, with lightly smoky oak notes, as well as complex nutty notes of cashew, nougat, hazelnut and biscuit.

Tastes

Massive concentration of flavour with an array of pineapple, peach, nectarine and caramel, teasing further complexity out through the sinfully decadent finish. For all the cream and caramel custard notes, the finish is completely fresh with a light grip on the inside of the cheeks. Expect big things of this wine in the cellar, but only if you manage to secure some. Always sells out upon release so don't risk it - grab yours today.
