Kidnapper Cliffs Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay 2014 $54

Richard Painter is the winemaker responsible for this mind-numbingly gorgeous chardonnay.  The first sip made me want to get all Spinal Tap on it and turn my rating up to 11 out of 10. Vibrant and golden in the glass, with ripe, sexy grapefruit, peach and pineapple notes, it also possesses gunflint and quartzy, minerally magic interwoven with creamy, macadamia layers. With Ballerina-like balance, it’s poised, succulent and so good I didn’t want the glass to end.  Hail King Richard!
Sip with: Who cares?  This wine will be the hero on the table.
