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 being declassified in 2011 and 2012 due to poor vintage conditions. Seven vintages in a row from 2013 through 2019 have established the label as a modern-day legend, with this 2019 looking very smart, it's only a matter of time before the accolades flood in. Tony Bish's mastery of the grape is 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... it has serious potential to be one of the (if not the) most striking wines in your collection.

Smells

The essence of peach and mandarin, with lightly smoky oak and complex cashew, nougat, hazelnut and biscuit aromas.

Tastes

Massive concentration of flavour with an array of pineapple, peach, nectarine, citrus, caramel, cashew, nougat and lemon meringue... it’s incredibly layered and complex with a sinful decadence, but an equally refined finish. For all its richness and power, the strong finish is completely fresh with a light grip on the inside of the cheeks. Expect big things of this wine in the cellar through 2027.
