Selaks Taste Collection Buttery Chardonnay Hawkes Bay 2016 – $
13% alc. Gold colour.
L loves a good buttery Chard. This showed bold malo on the nose, generous apricot and peach aromas, oaky influence.
Smooth golden stonefruit flavours to taste. A big generous mouthfeel, and creamy, but not too heavy. A light touch for a heavy white, if you will, seeking balance with acidity on the mid-palate. Medium length. A cheery value winter white, and a welcome return for this expressive and bountiful style of Chardonnay.
L sez “far too drinkable”!
