Sacred Hill Reserve Chardonnay 2016

Hawkes Bay, North Island, New ZealandIn 2016, the cool growing season in Hawkes Bay finished in a storm of heat and dry conditions, perfecting ripeness in the vineyard. The nose is a fragrant mix of citrus and hazelnuts. The palate is round and creamy with sweet lemon pie, orange and mineral flecks and vanilla undertones. The fruit comes off the famed Riflemans Terraces and is all barrel fermented in French oak barriques. A touch old style but well made.Tasted: 04 January 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 26.99 BCLS ON 40.00 Producer: Sacred HillDistributors: Pacific Wine & Spirits Inc.
