Kerr Farm Hawke's Bay Chardonnay

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2002 Vintage) says
Fermented in tanks and French and American oak casks, the 2002 vintage has lemony, appley aromas leading into a slightly honeyed palate with a touch of sweet, toasty oak. Fruity and smooth, it's a pleasant, drink-young style.

Michael Cooper (2001 Vintage) says
Fully fermented in new and seasoned French and American oak casks, the 2001 vintage is a golden wine with developed colour. Slightly honeyed, with a clear botrytis influence showing, it is flavoursome, peachy and smooth, but not a candidate for cellaring

Michael Cooper (1997 Vintage) says
Wendy and Jaison Kerr's vineyard is at Kumeu, but the company also produces a Chardonnay based on Hawke's Bay fruit. Most of the 1997 vintage was fermented in French and American oak barriques (half new) and given a softening malolactic fermentation; 20 per cent was handled in tanks. It's an easy-drinking wine with a slightly honied bouquet, good weight, fresh, lemony, buttery flavour and a soft finish. Ready.
