Description

  • Oaked
  • Stonefruit
  • Ripe figs
  • Nougat & vanilla

"It is elegantly lifted on the nose showing stonefruit, 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" 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.

I enjoyed this Chardonnay because, having never noticed this label before, I found opening the box on arrival and trying this 2016 mouth-filling was a very pleasant experience. It looked strong and nicely coloured in the glass and is a taste I found new, considering I drink a lot of Chardonnay. And it's outstanding value for money.
