Lil Rippa Hawkes Bay (Gimblett Gravels) Chardonnay 2017
From the famous Gimblett Gravels in Hawkes Bay, this is an upfront, appealing Chardonnay with orange zest and stonefruit notes and a bright, refreshing palate. What a rippa.
"Made from grapes grown in the Gimblett Gravels district, this tasty chardonnay shows apricot, peach and orange peel characters on the nose with hints of vanilla and hazelnut. The palate is succulent and smooth, delivering attractive fruit intensity and creamy texture, leading to a lengthy silky finish"
