This has gorgeous minerality with precise layers of crushed stones, white peaches, dried lemons, cedar, chalk and pie crust. Creamy with a medium to full body and bright acidity. Flinty and chalky layers hold long. Drink or hold. Screw cap.

The 2021 Chardonnay Kidnappers Vineyard Hawke’s Bay is all about precision and pizzazz, the bright, coastal site bringing vitality and tension. There’s very little evidence of oak here in terms of flavor, allowing the pineapple, pear, honeydew melon and lemon brightness to shine.

Floral and aromatic up front, with lemon zest, poached pear, lemon drop, fennel pollen and white grapefruit flavors that show hints of spice on a sleek, juicy frame. Ends with wonderful harmony and complexity on the finish

The glass is filled with sunshine: freshsqueezed lemon, tangerine sorbet, and an inner brightness. Honeyed stone fruit, clean lines, and superb acidity make this a sublime, food-friendly sipper.
