At $29.99 this is a steal. Mountford Estate Wines have an almost cult-like following for their outstanding, boutique wines. This Chardonnay bursts with classic creamy characters that will leave you reaching for a second glass. Simply world class.
The nose bursts with creme brulee, roasted cashew nuts and hints of butter. On the palate the acidity is beautifully balanced with a delightful creamy texture resulting from 100% malolactic fermentation.
The winery writes "Handpicked, whole bunch pressed, fermented and aged in French Oak. The Liaison Chardonnay is created by celebrating the traditional Burgundian elements of Chardonnay while expressing the Mountford Estate site in North Canterbury. Ripe stone fruits, passionfruit, buttery fudge and vanilla bean are finished with a crisp juicy acidity."
