Oakridge Vineyard Series Henk Chardonnay 2018
Dave Bicknell says his grower Henk is 'fit as trout'. The Pinot off this vineyard is super and this Chardonnay is no different.
There's an obvious polish and charisma present. Talk about a modern chardonnay - this smashes the brief.
The fruit is beautifully poised - white stonefruit and grapefruit sit at core. Flashes of Jersey caramel sway and weave at ease. Wonderfully pitched, it pulls you in with a wonderful gravitating presence. Long and moreish, the finish urges you to go back for more. It's hard not to.
Drink now to eight years.
