Kidnappers Vineyard Chardonnay
Craggy Range single vineyard wines, are not made every year. If the wine is to wear the Craggy Range label then it must do so proudly.
The Kidnappers Vineyard is located right on the Hawkes Bay coastline at Te Awanga, where the spring and autumn are sunny and the summer is tempered by the cooling sea breezes. The environment provides the development of very pure, cool Chardonnay flavours. This wine is inspired by the great wines of Chablis.
Kidnappers is a Chardonnay with seamless balance and refreshing acidity. A pale straw colour with green hues and the scent of lemons, white blossom, almonds and peaches. A hint of cream.
This white wine is deceptively complex and a treat.
