Concentrated Keltern

Villa Maria Keltern Vineyard Chardonnay 2017, Hawke’s Bay, NZD $59.99

Very stylish and quite concentrated chardonnay with citrus, grapefruit, struck flint, mineral, hazelnut, bran biscuit and spicy oak flavours. A youthful, well-proportioned wine, with considerable power and obvious cellaring potential. (Screwcap)
