Bespoke by Mills reef Chardonnay 2016, Hawkes Bay
Fruity, creamy and ripe orchard fruits bouquet with sweet peach and red apple laced with vanilla and baking spices of oak. On the palate – toasty, creamy then firm textures with medium+ acidity and big bite of oak. Flavours of red apple and stone fruits with a squeeze of citrus, fine wood tannins and a dry finish. Drinking quite young so perhaps some cellar time needed still. Decant for service. Best from 2019 through 2026.
