Clearview Reserve Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay

Review:

For his premium Chardonnay label, winemaker Tim Turvey aims for a ‘big, grunty, upfront’ style – and hits the target with ease. It’s typically a hedonist’s delight – an arrestingly bold, intense, savoury, mealy, complex wine with layers of flavour. Hand-picked from mature vines at Te Awanga, it is fermented and matured in ‘predominantly new’ French oak casks. Still very youthful, the 2019 vintage (5*) is powerful, but not heavy, with mouthfilling body, deep, ripe stonefruit flavours, savoury, biscuity, slightly smoky notes adding complexity, balanced acidity and a very harmonious finish. Best drinking 2023+.
