Description

Smith & Sheth is the new powerhouse wine brand made up primarily of Steve Smith MW, of Craggy Range fame and Brian Sheth, an American environmentalist, who also happens to be very wealthy. Needless to say, no expense is spared on these wines. The Cru Heretaunga Chardonnay is produced exclusively from a single vineyard of the same name in the heart of Hawkes Bay's Bridge Pa Triangle. Hand picked fruit off 20 year old vines was fermented and aged in 100% French oak. This is a wine of serious complexity and length and will age gracefully for 5 years and beyond. Best enjoyed with good company and good food.

Smells

Flint and gun-smoke is offset by bright tropical fruit, grapefruit skin and nutty complexities.

Tastes

Textural and full, with balancing acid giving the rich creamy palate structure and length. Ripe tropical fruit accentuated by roasted nut and burnt butter notes - flavours that will become more rounded and creamy with further aging.

We taste, rate & guarantee every wine we sell.
