Nockie's Palette Hawke's Bay Chardonnay (2018)

Retasted in late 2020, the 2018 vintage (4.5*) was made for Nockie’s Palette (in Central Otago) by Clearview Estate, at Te Awanga, in Hawke’s Bay. Drinking well now, it is bright, light yellow/green, with fresh, strong stonefruit flavours, buttery and toasty notes adding complexity, balanced acidity and a rich finish. Best drinking mid-2021+.
