Sip: Craggy Range Les Beaux Cailloux Chardonnay 2011

by Zoe Bowker

Our Verdict: Extremely classy Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay with a long and satisfying finish. Toffee notes push this Chardonnay towards the sweeter side of the spectrum, but a touch of subtle oak balances things out well. Extremely enjoyable drop that Chardonnay lovers will swoon over.

Producers notes: “Pale straw colour. Ripe peach, honey and lemon blossom create an intense bouquet with subtle toasted oak notes. Balanced and elegant on the palate. Refreshing acidity gives length whilst oak and fruit meld into complex layers of flavour with great textural interest.”
