Description

"Ripe and smooth, this likable chardonnay offers nectarine, rockmelon, citrus and vanilla aromas on the nose, followed by a succulent palate that is beautifully rounded and creamy. The wine shows attractive fruit intensity, nicely supported by juicy acidity, finishing long and silky. At its best: now to 2018" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Jan 2017

Fragrant with ripe peach, figs and a touch of vanilla. A creamy full-bodied wine with balanced acidity and a long finish. Crisp, dry and beautifully textured. Made with fruit from select vineyards in Marlborough. A portion is barrel fermented and underwent malolactic fermentation. This wine is drinking well now and will continue to develop complexity over the next few years.  

Food Pairing: Fabulous with roast chicken or creamy pasta.

Nice wine and excellent value. For me, a slightly to sharp/crisp taste for a chardonnay.
