Selaks Hawkes Bay Reserve Chardonnay – $$
Gold. Quite aromatic with white peach on the nose; more peaches and nectarines in the mouth, with a touch of lemon and honey and vanilla, and the typical bite of oak at the rear of the throat. Medium-rich, round and soft from the malolactic fermentation.
This chardonnay is quite sweet – too much for my taste.
Drunk with roast chicken and olives.
