Morton Estate Three Vineyards Chardonnay 2013 (Hawke’s Bay)
Fruit from a trifecta of Hawke’s Bay vineyards finds its way into this wine. Still fresh and youthful, it has an intriguing, slightly saline savoury edge. Gentle oak massaging adds complexity to the ripe stonefruit and citrus-laced fruit. “A slightly quirky style that is impressive,” noted John Belsham.
