"It is delightfully expressed on the nose showing ripe nectarine, rockmelon, orange peel and vanilla aromas, leading to a succulent palate that is beautifully rounded and creamy. The wine is fruit expressive and immediately appealing with gentle toasty notes, making it very easy to enjoy. Brilliantly priced" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

Lifted aromas of nectarine and rockmelon combine with well-integrated oak spice. Medium bodied with a soft round palate displaying ripe peach, fig and toasted hazelnut.

This wine is sourced from vineyards throughout Marlborough and harvested in the coolness of the evening to maintain fresh flavours. Some parcels of fruit were fermented in oak with a portion undergoing secondary fermentation to assist with softening the palate and adding complexity.

Food Pairing: Well matched with fettuccine with scallops and white wine sauce or a spring vegetable risotto.

Great Chardonnay for the price

Ronnie - 01/04/2019

One dimensional, built on butterscotch aroma and not a lot else, but it has enough acidity to accompany food with creamy texture, requiring the cut through but with some reasonable body. At the price we would buy it again for those "emergency" occasions.
