David Hook 2019 Reserve Chardonnay
From the outstanding 2019 vintage, Hooky's style is ripe with nougat-like aromas and with a vibrant persistence. Grown at the Pothana Vineyard , the vines are over 30 years old and low yielding, producing less than 2 tonnes per acre annually.
The wine is pale gold in colour with youthful green tinges. The aroma is intense with a complex bouquet of citrus and peach fruit characters. Barrel fermentation adding charred oak and cashew nut to the nose and palate. The flavours of stone fruit and lemon zest are sustained with fresh acid and toasty oak in a rich well structured wine.
