American wines are red hot in New Zealand these days and we have secured a great deal on this lovely, ripe Californian Chardonnay from a masterful winemaking team. Deliciously creamy and full bodied with lovely mouthfeel and fruit weight.
The winery writes "Our Chardonnay reflects the distinctive personality of Monterey vineyards, which give rise to juicy apple, guava and melon flavors. Whole-cluster pressing and a combination of barrel and stainless steel fermentation ensures that the creamy texture and caramelized sugar finish is balanced by a crisp acidity. Bright and balanced, highlighted by juicy apple, cantaloupe and pear flavors enveloped in a crème brûlée finish."
