21st BIRTHDAY SUPERDEAL| One of New Zealands finest unoaked chardonnays
FIVE STARS 93/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit "Beautifully fruited and splendidly styled.."
This highly respected Gisborne Chardonnay is unoaked, but it's so rich and generous in the mouth that you'd never know. We love it for its mouthfilling, ripe summer stonefruits. We love it for its soft texture and rich creaminess. And we love it for its sheer deliciousness. This is impressive wine that ranks amongst New Zealand's very finest unoaked chardonnay expressions.
Cam Douglas MS writes "Classic and distinctive bouquet of Chardonnay with aromas of white and yellow peach, grapefruit then wood spices - quite soft adding complexity and subtlety. On the palate - dry, near full-bodied, fine creamy texture with a satin edge, warm and fresh, fine tannins, wood spice and nut. There’s a California peach moment then a swing back to peach and apple. Plenty of length, familiar, balanced and well made."
Sam Kim writes "Beautifully fruited and splendidly styled, the inviting bouquet shows apricot, golden peach, vanilla and roasted cashew characters. It's succulent and supple on the palate, offering lovely weight and creamy texture, finishing long and comforting."
