Smith and Sheth 2020 CRU Heretaunga Chardonnay (Hawke's Bay)

This is a pristine, Burgundy-influenced Chardonnay with poise and ageworthiness. The nose is bright and enticing, with notes of lemon and melon rind set to a backdrop of cream, toast and rock salt. The full-figured palate is slippery with a vivid line of acidity. Oak and lees influence add opulence, texture and complexity while knowing their place as supporting characters. Drinking beautifully now, this has the potential to age gracefully until around 2030. Christina Pickard
