New Zealand — Hawkes Bay • $24.95 • 89.5/100

This wine is part of Kim Crawford’s higher end “small parcels” series, with fruit from selected vineyards from Hawk’s Bay. It is light straw-yellow in colour, with a smoky-reductive nose that slightly masks quite complex notes of fresh herbs, white flowers, lime, green apple and honeydew melon. Bright acidity nicely balances some creamy richness on the palate, where vanilla and resin notes are perhaps a little dominant for now, but should settle nicely over the next year or two. That being said, there is so much life and energy here that it won’t be a major sacrifice to drink it early. • LCBO Release 04/01/2017 • LCBO id#378604 • Find it at your nearest LCBOCONSTELLATION BRANDS INC.
