Smith & Sheth CRU Heretaunga Chardonnay
Vibrant pale straw colour with some green tinges. Fresh and fruit-driven, almost Chablis-like in style. Complex and light on its feet. Vibrant acidity balanced by a creamy, lingering texture.
The fruit is sourced from two vineyards in Hawke’s Bay, 20-year-old Clone 15 and 95 vines that are dry-farmed on a silty loam over gravel with some limestone influence, and old Mendoza vines grown on river terrace soil, light loam over gravel.
Textural and full, with balancing acid giving the rich creamy palate structure and length.
Ripe tropical fruit accentuated by roasted nut and burnt butter notes – flavours that will become more round and creamier with age.
