Classy Waiheke Island Chardonnay from this much loved and respected producer. This is middle to full bodied Chardonnay with plenty of action in the glass. It's loaded with solid stonefruit palate weight with creamy mouthfeel and plenty of spicy oak in support. It's not often you see Waiheke Island Chardonnay of this standard under the key $30 barrier and this well priced wine comes highly recommended.
The winery writes "The 2019 Estate Chardonnay has an abundance of aromas from meyer lemon, green apple, and quince to yellow plum and nectarine. There are subtle notes of brioche and toasted almond. The palate is rich yet incredibly focussed with a length of acidity running through the entire palate structure, slicing through the weight and concentration and complementing the natural fruit tannin. This is an epic wine."
