SACRED HILL WINE THIEF CHARDONNAY HAWKE'S BAY 19
Handpicked, old vine (27 years of age) Chardonnay grapes were whole bunch pressed straight to barrel. The wine received 100% barrel fermentation with indigenous yeasts and full malo-lactic fermentation.
The nose is toasty and buttery with hazelnut and lemon aromas and a touch of minerality. The palate is rich and textural, with notes of lemon, quince and grapefruit. Layers of minerality and nuttiness offer complexity. The finish is long and intense.
