Description

The iconic 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 and fermented in 100% French Oak (50% new). Whilst it doesn't quite have 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 for 5-10 years, under the correct conditions.

Smells

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

Tastes

A generous, creamy palate with rich stone fruit tinged with gently salivating ripe grapefruit.... signature flavours of this legendary estate. Threaded by toasty oak and biscuit-like lees richness, with beautiful acidity that adds freshness, so despite its concentration and richness, it never overwhelms. Utterly enjoyable now through 2025 and beyond with roasted chicken or pork.

We taste, rate & guarantee every wine we sell.
