Smith and Sheth CRU Heretaunga Chardonnay 2018

12.7% abv

Vibrant pale straw colour with some green tinges. Fresh and fruit driven, almost Chablis-like in style. Complex and light on its feet. Vibrant acidity balanced by a creamy, lingering texture.

“Made in a rich, ripe style, delivering just the right amount of plumpness on the midpalate without becoming heavy. The high concentration of ripe peach and pineapple-like character handles the 40% new French oak with aplomb; a nutty, toasty layer supports rather than overwhelms the fruit. The grapefruit-like acidity provides a framework that holds the wine together and gives line and length.” 2020 – 2025
