Excellent Central Otago Chardonnay from this boutique, family-owned producer. Closeburn is thier unoaked Chardonnay release, with bright tropical fruits and crisp acidity and extended ageing on lees has introduced delicious complexity and texture. A superb food wine.
The winery writes "Juicy nectarine and pear fruits, with apple blossom floral tones giving a nice lift to the attractive bouquet. The palate displays wonderful purity of tree fruit flavour. There is a nice flow to the structure and length, with good balance and chewy acidity."
