11 Nov Riflmans selected for the Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay Collection
Sacred Hill are honoured to have the 2019 Riflemans Chardonnay selected for the 2020 Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay Collection.
12 Chardonnays were selected in a blind tasting by New Zealand’s only Master Sommelier, Cameron Douglas MS, to showcase the many expressions and high quality examples of Chardonnay from across Hawke’s Bay.
Hawke’s Bay Winegrowers will send these 12 wines to wine writers and critics around the world.
Cameron Douglas described the 2019 Riflemans Chardonnay as “A distinctive Chardonnay with a smoky, toasty, cream, classic and enticing bouquet. Flavours of new oak spice, raw cashew, ripe nectarine, peach, vanilla butter and a light smoky wood. This is a delicious wine with a gentle creamy texture, a satin-cream mouthfeel, fine wood tannins and plenty of ripe orchard fruits.”
