Falconhead Chardonnay Hawkes Bay 2013 – $
Raymond Chan gave this new brand 4 out of 5 stars. So I laid my money down.
Gold colour. 13%.
Nose of clean fruit, floral, fresh. Notes of butter and oak, lemon and peach. Very nice.
Fresh on palate, with luscious citrus character and bright ripe fruit. Generous and fresh and simple. An uplifting style of Chardonnay. Shows good quality but not overworked. Great value!
