Collaboration Aurulent Hawke's Bay Chardonnay (2019)

The classy, youthful 2019 vintage (5*) was grown at 'select vineyards' and barrel-fermented. Bright, light lemon/green, it is fragrant and full-bodied, with searching, vigorous, grapefruit-like flavours, finely integrated oak, slightly smoky notes, impressive complexity and a tightly structured, long finish. Rich, refined and full of personality, it's well worth cellaring to 2023+.
