Rongopai Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay 2016
A perfect partner with a wide variety of dishes. Try it with roast chicken with almonds and dried apricots in the stuffing, or pan-fried fish in a light cream sauce.
The grapes were harvested in perfect condition in late March/ early April. Fermentation took place in stainless steel vats at cool temperatures to capture primary fruit aromas and freshness. A portion was allowed to undergo malolactic fermentation.
Citrus, apple and peach form the base of a perfumed nose. Mouthfilling sweet fruit is upfront on the palate. Fresh peach and mineral notes continue on the finish.
