Swift Wines Bridge Pa Triangle Whole Bunch Chardonnay 2021 $36
Cardoness Vineyard in Hawke’s Bay’s Bridge Pa Triangle is in conversion to organics and it’s where winemaker Lauren Swift has sourced the Clone 15 and Mendoza fruit from for this richly-styled, fresh-as-a-daisy chardonnay. With aromas of caramelised oak, fresh popcorn, grilled grapefruit and edged with apple, and a palate saturated with citrus and stitched together with a hint of creamy, almond character, it’s a juicy and deliciously complex style that’ll suit any food or mood. Just a puppy, with a long life ahead of it, this chardonnay has focus and freshness and *kapow in every sip.
