Esk Valley Hawkes Bay Chardonnay 2016
The toasty oatmeal and vanilla-poached peach on the nose is inviting in this bright fresh wine that initially seems like it has a forest of spicy oak and fruit in the apricot spectrum. It rounds out quite nicely as the flavours linger, the oak integrating nicely and the flavours lingering with a soft, easy feel. Fabulously priced for gold medal summer sipping and it can take plenty of chilling. Gold AirNZ.
