Abbey Estate Wild Fermented Bridge Pa Chardonnay 2019 $30

Yum Yum Yumminny! This is a really interesting, multi-layered lovely from Dermot and his team at Abbey Estate in Hawke’s Bay’s Bridge Pa Triangle Wine District. Bursting with white nectarine, apricot, grapefruit pith, dried herb and nutty, toasty, caramelised characters in the mid-palate, it carries a complex, smoky tone along its long finish and it really opens up in the glass.
