De La Terre Hawke's Bay Barrique Ferment Chardonnay (2018)

The very powerful 2018 vintage (4.5*) was estate-grown at Havelock North and fermented in French oak casks (28 per cent new). Bright, light yellow/green, it is robust (14.8 per cent alcohol), with strong stone-fruit flavours, a hint of honey, and fresh acidity. Full of personality, it's a drink-now or cellaring proposition.
