Description

One of NZ's foremost expressions of Chardonnay, this 2018 builds on the reputation of the outstanding 2013, 2014, 2015 & 2016 vintages, among the all-time classic NZ Chardonnays. Twice NZ winemaker of the year Hugh Crichton magnificently crafts this world class Chardonnay with fruit from the famous Lyons & Kokako Hawkes Bay vineyards into a powerful full-bodied wine perfectly complimented by 10-months in the finest French oak barriques. The impressively concentrated fruit easily subsumes the 45% new barrels creating a seductively toasty thread. 2018 is yet another impressive Legacy Chardonnay from Hugh Crichton... his Legacy will be enjoyed for 20+ years with this 2018 if stored properly.

Smells

Abundant and enticing aromas of alpine florals, toasty oak, peach, hazelnut, bran biscuit and subtle gun smoke.

Tastes

The palate is flooded with white peach, grapefruit, butterscotch, hazelnut and toasty elements in a rich, creamy and nutty embrace. Stunning length and layered with complexities it’s a mix of power and sophistication. Chardonnay for the ages, a short decant will work nicely while young... and enjoy with roast pork belly and chicken dishes. Grab at least a 6-pack to enjoy from 2023 through 2030+.
