World class, bottle aged Chardonnay from one of New Zealand's most celebrated boutique producers.
Mountford Estate have developed a Chardonnay reputation that few other New Zealand producers have managed to emulate. Always powerful expressions of Waipara fruit, they are handcrafted in every aspect and sit amongst the very best examples of fine Chardonnay that New Zealand has to offer.
Sealed under screwcap, this important Estate wine is a tour de force, opulent wine that is loaded with rich, creme-caramel and lemon cream flavours. The 2010 is showing especially well. It is now at its best but is holding its own and has plenty of gas in the tank.
A fragrant, elegant, full-bodied wine with a powerful surge of citrusy, slightly buttery flavours, well-integrated oak, a minerally thread, good 'drive' through the palate and a tightly structured finish.
