Description

"This attractive chardonnay offers excellent drinkability. It is nicely lifted on the nose showing rockmelon, citrus peel, vanilla and subtle toasted almond characters. The palate delivers juicy fruit flavours and vibrancy, beautifully complemented by silky texture and bright fruit flavours, leading to a lengthy smooth finish. At its best: now to 2019" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, May 2017

Juicy aromas of peach, rockmelon and toasty oak. A creamy texture with delicious layered flavours of ripe nectarine, vanilla and a hint of toasted hazelnut. Lovely soft acidity, well integrated oak spice and a smooth, lingering finish.

Fruit for this Bishops Leap Chardonnay is from a selection of immaculately tended vineyards throughout Marlborough. Partial fermentation in oak and malolactic fermentation was carried out to enhance the flavours and fill the palate.  This wine will cellar well for the next two to three years but is also perfect for drinking immediately.

Food Pairing: Try it with seafood chowder and crusty bread.
