From the Cellar: Sacred Hill Chardonnay Hawkes Bay 2012 – $$
Gold colour. 12.5%
Mealy secondary aromas. Cashews, butterscotch, apricots. Interesting.
I taste dulled fruit, a bit thin at first look, and citrus. This wine died in the glass in a relatively short time, and became unrewarding. Some wines improve with a bit of age, but this was not one of them. Oh well.
