Esk Valley Artisanal Collection Hawke's Bay Chardonnay (2021)

Offering very good value, the 2021 vintage (4.5*) was harvested at Bay View and Maraekakaho, and fermented with indigenous yeasts in French oak barriques. Bright, light lemon/green, it is mouthfilling and vibrant, with deep, youthful, grapefruit-like flavours and a slightly creamy, lingering finish. A finely poised, subtle, savoury wine, it's delicious young.
