Description

"Nicely ripe and lifted, the fragrant bouquet shows nectarine, lemon peel and almond characters with subtle vanilla notes. The palate delivers succulent mouthfeel and smooth texture, beautifully supported by bright fruit intensity and juicy acidity. The wine is well balanced and approachable, and offers excellent value. At its best: now to 2019" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Feb 2017

Grapes for this wine are from select vineyards in the Marlborough Valley. An alluring bouquet of fresh figs, peaches and a touch of spice. The creamy palate delivers apricots and white peach, with a touch of vanilla and a smooth balanced acidity.Medium bodied, it has a pleasant silkiness to the mouth feel and a persistent, lingering finish. Whalebone Chardonnay will continue to develop in bottle for a further 2-4 years from harvest.

Food Pairing: It is delicious on its own, or a wonderfully paired with mussel chowder, whole baked fish or creamy chicken casserole.
