Elephant Hill Salomé Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay


The powerful, classy 2019 vintage (5*) was estate-grown in the Bridge Pa Triangle (78 per cent) and at Te Awanga (22 per cent), and fermented and matured for 15 months in French oak casks (28 per cent new). Bright, light lemon/green, with a highly fragrant, complex bouquet, it is mouthfilling and vibrantly fruity, with ripe stone-fruit flavours, showing excellent delicacy and concentration, finely integrated toasty oak, fresh acidity, and a poised, tightly structured, long finish. A classic cellaring style, it should break into full stride 2023+.
