Description

"It is elegantly lifted on the nose showing stone fruit, lemon peel, nougat and vanilla notes, leading to a juicy palate that offers pristine fruit flavours and silky texture. The wine is immediate and friendly, and is very easy on the palate, making it a delightful wine for everyday drinking. At its best: now to 2018" Sam Kim Wine Orbit

The Fire Road Chardonnay has an expressive nose with characters of fresh peach, apricot and a subtle spice. The grapes from a number of quality vineyard sites throughout Marlborough were harvested at optimum ripeness to produce this rich, fresh fruit driven Chardonnay. 

Beautifully balanced with a soft round palate of ripe figs and flavours of refreshing stone fruit which lead to a delicate finish.
