From one of the Hawkes Bays Chardonnay Producing Icons,Tony Bish!
Old vine dry farmed Mendoza Chardonnay, fully barrel fermented in Taransaud French oak barriques. Intense rich & powerful with sublime texture.
The bouquet shows power and depth, with white peach, citrus fruits, nutty almond notes,along with mealy biscuit characters with subtle flint and mineral nuances.
The palate is rich with power and intensity of fruit supported by layers of complex flavours that unfold in the mouth. Yellow stone fruits mingle with ripe citrus and almond notes, complemented by rich nutty and textural characters from barrel ferment.
