2015 Trademark Chardonnay
Rod McDonald is the master of both Hawkes Bay Chardonnay and Syrah, making his name at Vidal and now making wine under his own steam: RM Wines. With several labels across different philosophies and price points, TRADEMARK is the pinnacle. They are pure, refined expressions of Hawkes Bay terroir. Beautiful opulent and intense oak combine with razor sharp acidity and flinty reductive notes. Damn fine splendid.
