Description

"This is succulent, creamy and comforting; lifted aromas of golden peach, mango, vanilla and roasted hazelnut on the nose. The palate is equally appealing with fleshy mouthfeel and silky texture, backed by juicy fruit flavours and toasty complexity, finishing smooth and lingering. At its best: now to 2020. Aug 2018." Sam Kim Wine Orbit, Aug 2018

Fruit for this wine was sourced from several vineyards in the foothills of the Wairau Valley in Marlborough.

A fruit driven chardonnay with complex flavours of ripe peach, lemon curd and hazelnut.  The palate is rich, generous and complex with an elegant structure and refined finish. The lengthy palate offers flavours of peach, warm brioche and sweet spice.

The majority of this Faultline Reserve Chardonnay was barrel fermented in seasoned oak. This wine went through malolactic fermentation which helps to soften the acidity and gives fullness on the palate.

A great wine for drinking immediately, or with careful cellaring of up to five years from vintage date this Chardonnay will develop into a fuller, more complex wine.

Food Pairing: An ideal match with scallops or creamy chicken casserole.
