Country: New Zealand, Marlborough
Tasting Notes: A bouquet showing complexity, ripeness of fruit and enticement from oak, lees and a flinty mineral-like layer from clever winemaking. Dry on the palate with a great texture once again from attention to detail using lees and oak, fluffy solids and ripe fruit. Flavours of fuzzy white peach, apple and lemon. Well placed use of oak, vibrant texture, freshness and a lengthy finish equal a well made and enticing example.
Varietal: 100% Chardonnay
