Mission Estate Jewelstone Chardonnay 2015 (Hawke’s Bay)
Top-notch fruit and a lot of winemaker love is directed at Mission Estate’s Jewelstone range, and it shows with this superb chardonnay. Aromatic wisps of gunflint and sweet citrus lead the way to a fresh, long palate where green olives in brine, lime and stonefruit notes come
through. The texture is ‘marbled’, with a hint of fat adding complexity to the mouthfeel.
