Helio, Chardonnay, Hawke's Bay - 2020

${symbol}${ activeVariant.price | money }

Helio Chardonnay has a hint of reduction on the nose, reminiscent of freshly struck flint. This gives way to juicy stone fruit and a touch of grapefruit.  An attractive oyster shell mouth feel gives a pithy texture, paired with cleansing citrus and stone fruit on the palate. You’ll be going back for a second glass before you know it. A long finish of quenching bitterness and a hint of toasted vanilla from the old oak barrels makes for seriously food friendly Chardonnay.

Pair with good friends, crayfish, risotto, chargrilled chicken or well seasoned fish.

Made by the sun. Built for the cellar.

"There’s something incredibly appealing about this wine. Be prepared for it’s youthful reductive energy - it’s new, fresh, flinty and distracting. Aromas of fresh grapefruit and peach, there’s a note of pith and lemon, these give way to a mineral stony quality adding complexity and breadth. All these ideas are mirrored on the palate with a powerful mineral earthy quality, layers of fruit ripeness and intensity. A very sophisticated and modern wine, detailed, complex and lengthy. Outstanding"
