Black Barn Block 191 Hawke's Bay Chardonnay (2019)

Only 900 bottles were produced of the youthful 2019 vintage (5*). A single-vineyard, barrel-selected wine, it is bright, light yellow/green, with a fragant, mealy, slightly smoky bouquet. Powerful, weighty, savoury and complex, it has rich, lively, grapefruit and peach flavours, seasoned with biscuity oak, fresh acidity and a long finish. Best drinking 2023+.
