White gold in the glass, Estate Vineyards Chardonnay ’19 has the immediate refreshing appeal of ripe nectarine and lemon sorbet edged with sea-salt, roast almond and just a hint of smoke from French oak. The lush toastiness and crisp palate, with notes of mango, grapefruit, and pineapple, lead to a long, fine, fruit-driven finish. Classically Hawke’s Bay, Estate Vineyards Chardonnay ’19 is a stylish, modern chardonnay with intensity, complexity and charm.

Wine Storage Suggestions
Estate Vineyards Chardonnay ’19 will continue to evolve in bottle for two to four years from harvest.

WINEMAKING                                                                                                        Estate Vineyards Chardonnay ’19 combines the best of traditional and modern winemaking. This involved tank fermentation to preserve the vibrant varietal aromas and clear, fresh fruit expression along with some barrel fermentation, barrel maturation on gross lees, and malolactic fermentation to enhance the complexity, richness and integration.
