Ash Ridge Premium Late Harvest Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay 2019 $29 375ml

It’s not a common thing finding a dessert-style chardonnay, but Lauren Swift and her team at Ash Ridge seem to be able to regularly turn out sweet, sticky superstar examples on the regular. Scented with grilled pineapple, roast peach, lemon meringue and marmalade all leap out of the glass. Fresh, mandarin-sweet, bright and sexy. Yum!
