Pale straw yellow, green hues. The best Chardonnay Hardy's can create exhibits an intense, complex grapefruit bouquet with hints of flint, cream and malt. The palate shows a struck match, flinty mineral character with grapefruit and malt. Piercing, lemon, ripe apple flavours with spice and rind are met by a gently smear of creamy, malty oak, genuine power, grandness, yet delicacy, a serious Chardonnay to cherish and to savour.
