Description

Riflemans vineyard is famous for producing its namesake Chardonnay that is one of NZ's very finest... a Chardonnay crafted to age for 10-20 years. Wine Thief is made with fruit off the same legendary Hawke's Bay Single Vineyard and aged/fermented in 60% new Cadet French oak. Not quite the same unbridled power of Riflemans, it is an outstanding Chardonnay with an extraordinarily modest price tag considerably less than its undeniable quality and style on offer. It has age ability through 2025-2027 if well stored.

Smells

The toasty oak, grapefruit, peach, bran biscuit and brioche aromas are seductive.

Tastes

A generous, creamy palate rife with rich stone fruit tinged with gently salivating ripe grapefruit.... signature flavours of this legendary estate. Threaded by toasty oak and biscuity/pastry like lees richness the acidity beautifully guides, supports and freshens, so despite its concentration and richness, it never overwhelms. Utterly enjoyable now through 2025/2027.
