Estate Vineyards Chardonnay ’15 has the aromas of white meadow flowers, French vanilla and floral, juicy Hawke’s Bay peaches. Bright light gold, the palate unfurls with a balance of rock melon, sweet lemon, candied lime and complexing notes of biscuit, stone fruit and grilled nuts. A pure chardonnay with lovely length and a crisp clean finish. Estate Vineyards Chardonnay ’15 is delicious own its own, or a wonderful partner for both simply prepared and fuller flavoured seafood, and white meat dishes. Estate Vineyards Chardonnay ’15 will continue to evolve in bottle for two to four years from harvest.
