Clearview Te Awanga Chardonnay Hawkes Bay 2014 – $$
Pale gold colour. 14% alc.
Perfumed and floral white blossoms, oatmeal and aniseed.
To taste, the wine is fresh, layered and elegant, taut and rich. The malo is very well balanced with citrus. Quite an acidic and minerally finish. Mouthwatering.
It reminded me a little of that Corton Charlemagne GC I tasted a little while back. Very good, that.
