Quarter Acre Hawke's Bay Chardonnay (2019)

The 2019 vintage (4.5*) was hand-picked at two sites (including Haumoana, on the coast), and fermented and lees-aged for 10 months in French oak barriques (30 per cent new). Bright, light lemon/green, with fragrant, 'struck match' aromas, it is fresh and full-bodied, with strong, youthful, stonefruit flavours, showing very good complexity, smoky notes and a lingering finish. Best drinking mid-2022+.
