Description

  • Ripe peach & figs
  • Vanilla
  • Creamy
  • Full bodied

"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" 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.
