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

The bold, almost brash 2018 vintage (4.5*) was made for Nockie's Palette (in Central Otago) by Clearview Estate, at Te Awanga, in Hawke's Bay. Bright, light yellow/green, it is a powerful wine, crafted in a very upfront style, with concentrated, ripe stone-fruit flavours, buttery and toasty notes adding complexity, balanced acidity, and loads of drink-young appeal.
