Description

"It is elegantly fragrant on the nose showing rockmelon, fig, citrus peel and subtle vanilla characters. The palate is succulent and rounded, and delivers pristine fruit flavours together with silky texture and creamy mouthfeel, leading to a lingering smooth finish. The wine is fruit expressive and delightfully drinkable, and offers excellent value. At its best: now to 2019" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Jan 2018

The 2015 Kingfisher Chardonnay grapes are sourced from the Marlborough region, famous for the production of expressive, fruit flavoured wines. The bouquet displays peach, nectarine, and a touch of crème brulee. The palate shows more of a savoury influence with refined nutty oak balanced with stone fruit flavours and creamy butterscotch.

This wine was cool fermented in order to retain fruit flavour and freshness. A proportion was oak fermented and underwent malolactic fermentation to help add complexity, texture and palate weight. At its best now until 2019.

Food Pairing: Perfect for drinking on its own or delicious with chicken casserole or creamy mushroom tagliatelle.
