Coniglio Hawkes Bay Chardonnay 2004



Coniglio-V


2004 Vintage

This wine of exceptional style and elegance, hand crafted from the finest Chardonnay fruit grown in our unique Hawkes Bay vineyard at Riverview. Produced only in years when fruit achieves absolute perfection, hand selection and whole bunch pressing have created a style that is seamless and the pinnacle of the winemakers art. As a result of fermenting and then maturing on lees in new French oak barriques, the fruit and oak are fully integrated in a palate that is soft, yet full with great length of flavor. Partial malolacticfermentation has further contributed to the complexity, fullness and weight of the palate. The Coniglio style is one that will age gracefully for many years to come.

5stars

“Big, rich, creamy and complex Chardonnay with plenty of everything – tree fruit flavours, oak, sizzled butter, roasted nuts and bran biscuit. The wine shows good bottle development with emerging toasty complexity. Generous alcohol adds warmth while promoting a silken texture.
– Bob Campbell (MW)
