Falconhead Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay


Vintage 2014

Barrel fermentation has given this wine complex aromas of peach, vanilla and cashew nut with a delightful crème brulee and marzipan lift. The palate is medium bodied with great textural complexity and a lingering melon, vanilla and honeycomb finish.

Vintage 2013
“Bright, full straw-yellow colour with hints of gold, lighter on rim. The nose is full and up-front with aromas of ripe, savoury yellow stonefruits along with tropical fruits and apricots, entwined with soft oak and light butterscotch MLF nuances. Dryish to taste and medium-bodied, up-front ripe yellow stonefruit and sweet apricot flavours are melded with nuts, toast and butter. The mouthfeel is open and broad, quite rounded, with balanced acidity and energy. As the wine flows, drying phenolics emerge and carry the palate to a light, nutty finish. This is an up-front and open Chardonnay with moderately rich stonefruit flavours and a dry, nutty finish. Match with most white meat dishes over the next 3 years.”
