19 Crimes Hard Chard 750ml
Our Hard Chard honours the brave contributions of the women banished to Australia with the boldest expression of Chardonnay we could make.
Light bright gold. Ripe pear and nectarine aromas show good clarity and pick up smoky lees and toasted grain nuances with aeration. Silky and open-knit, offering concentrated orchard and pit fruit flavors complemented by suggestions of fennel and honey. The smoky quality comes back on a long, smooth finish that leaves behind a refreshingly bitter pear skin note.90 Points Vinous
Generous aromas of fruit and toasty oak entice the senses as you first encounter this Chardonnay. Green apples and juicy pears give way to elegant hints of lemon meringue, and finish ripe and refreshing on the palate. Created by aging on the lees, the rich and velvety mouthfeel adds complexity to the fruit, allowing the flavors to sink softly into toasty notes of American oak. The finish, lingering and graceful, is coupled by a mouthwatering acidity that creates a longing for just one more sip. Winery
