Chardy with attitude

Kidnapper Cliffs Chardonnay 2014, Hawke’s Bay, NZD $54.99

Fine, elegant chardonnay with citrus, mineral, matchstick, hazelnut, ginger and bran biscuit flavours. A restrained wine with a pleasing influence of sea air/saltiness. A wine of subtle power. Opened as it sat in the glass – deserves to be decanted. (Screwcap)
