Description

Smith & Sheth is the exciting new NZ wine venture bringing together revered Kiwi winemaker/viticulturist and Master of Wine, Steve Smith (established Craggy Range and was responsible for many of their finest wines) ... and wealthy American businessman and noted environmentalist Brian Sheth, who, like Steve, is passionate about the creation of WORLD CLASS wines within the most holistic vineyard and winemaking environments. Steve and Brian are committed to making wines that speak of the vineyard... a philosophy of old-world winemaking, where generation upon generation have become intimate with every nuance of their land and can empathetically nurture the land to grow more balanced and pure fruit expressions of that site. The French famously refer to it as understanding your “terroir”... Steve and Brian refer to it as “Turangawaewae” ... “our place in the world”... describing a special connection of a people and the land they live, love and work in. The Cru Heretaunga Chardonnay is produced from two dry grown (no irrigation) vineyards with a mix of 20+ year old clone 15 & 95 grapes and older Mendoza vines located in the heart of Hawke's Bay's Bridge Pa Triangle. Low levels of new oak enable the complex fruit to be freshly expressed whilst enhancing texture and body... the finesse of a French Chablis in harmony with the renowned generosity of Hawkes Bay Chardonnay fruit. A very impressive Chardonnay... enjoy now through 2028.

Smells

Flint and gun-smoke is offset by bright tropical fruit, grapefruit skin and nutty complexities.

Tastes

Textural and full, with balancing acid giving the rich creamy palate structure and length. Ripe tropical fruit accentuated by roasted nut and burnt butter notes – flavours that will become more round and creamier with age. With every six-pack of Heretaunga you'll recieve a FREE bottle of the stunning, RRP$60, Smith & Sheth CRU Mangatahi Chardonnay 2018! The CRU Mangatahi Chardonnay is produced exclusively from a single vineyard west of Hastings. Hand-picked Mendoza fruit off 25+ year old vines was fermented and aged in 50% new French oak for 10 months. This is a wine of serious complexity and length and will age gracefully for 5 years and beyond.
