Church Road 1 Single Vineyard Terraces Chardonnay (2019)

The classy, youthful 2019 vintage (5*) was grown in the lower Tuki Tuki Valley, Hawke's Bay, and fermented and matured in French oak casks (27 per cent new). Bright, light yellow/green, with a slightly smoky fragrance, it is powerful yet elegant, with strong peach and grapefruit flavours, finely balanced toasty oak, vibrant acidity, and impressive richness and complexity. Tightly structured, it's well worth cellaring.
