Sacred Hill Reserve Chardonnay Hawkes Bay 2014 – $$
From the producer of the notable Riflemans Chardonnay, the barrel fermentation creates here a soft style of Chardonnay. 13.5% alc.
A bit fat, a bit of citrus, a bit of apple, a bit of dried apricot, a bit creamy. A bit of everything, really.
A bit more individual personality would have lifted the rating…
