4.5 STARS 91/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
A stunning Gisborne wine. The Longbush team consistently produce great wines and their 2022 Chardonnay is another excellent release. Elegant, luscious and full of bright fruit notes, this is an out and out steal for $14.99 on case buys.
The winery writes "Bright gold and green in appearance. A classic bouquet of Chardonnay with peaches and cream leading the aroma package with a fresh bright fruit palate of apricot and stone fruit. Dry on the palate with a whisper of sweetness. Plenty of acidity with long lees and a toasty oak finish."
Sam Kim writes "It's fruit forward and fragrant on the nose showing ripe nectarine, lemon peel, fig and subtle nougat notes, leading to a succulent palate delivering supple texture and rounded mouthfeel. Well supported by bright acidity, finishing lingering and refreshing."
