Sacred Hill Hawkes Bay 2009 Chardonnay

In recent years the buzz in Hawkes Bay has been about the stunning Bordeaux style red wines being produced in the region, particularly from the Gimblett Gravels sub-region.
As a result of all the well desreved fuss about reds we have tended to overlook some of the other great wines made in the region and one consistent performer si Sared Hill with their chardonnay.
The 2009 version is bright and fresh, packed with chalky minerality and elegant stonefruit characters. the lovely creamy mid-weighted palate is the result of lees stirring with a lashing of oak spice in the juicy finish.
