Description

  • Ripe white peach
  • Rockmelon
  • Lemon zest
  • Round & creamy mouthfeel

"It's immediately appealing on the nose showing apricot, mango, nougat and roasted cashew characters. The palate displays lovely weight and flow, well supported by creamy mouthfeel and bright acidity, making it delightfully enjoyable" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Jan 2021

The Fire Road Chardonnay has an expressive nose with characters of ripe white peach with a hint of lemon zest. Beautifully balanced with a soft round palate of rockmelon and flavours of refreshing stone fruit which lead to a smooth creamy finish. Drinking beautifully now, and will continue to develop over the next few years.

The grapes from a number of quality vineyard sites throughout Marlborough were harvested at optimum ripeness to produce this rich, fresh fruit driven Chardonnay.

Food Pairing: Matched beautifully with Baked Dijon salmon.

Not as good as previous vintage. Seems lacking in fruit
