Craggy Range Les Beaux Cailloux Chardonnay 2017 Gimblett Gravels Hawkes Bay

A complex and interesting bouquet of Chardonnay centering on aromas and flavours of white peach and apple skin, some grapefruit and preserved citrus fruit notes, new oak with a sweet vanilla extract with a gun-flint stony soil layer. Firm, dry, youthful and complex. A young wine still requiring additional cellar time to fully harmonise and reveal its true self. Medium+ weight, fine oak tannins, plenty of acidity and lengthy intriguing finish. Well made, just needs time in your cellar. Best from 2022 through 2032.
