Smith & Sheth Cru Heretaunga Chardonnay (2019)

A classic regional style, the 2019 vintage (5*) was hand-picked from mature vines in the Bridge Pa Triangle and Gimblett Gravels, and fermented and matured for nine months in French oak barriques. Bright yellow/green, it is mouthfilling and sweet-fruited, with concentrated stone-fruit flavours, seasoned with toasty oak, balanced acidity and a fragrant bouquet. Already delicious, it should be at its best 2023+
