Falconhead Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay


FHCH-V


Vintage 2017

Complex aromas from barrel fermentation overlay a ripe stone fruit core. White peach and vanilla bean flavour with a backbone of minerality. Delicious.

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.”
