Quite possibly the finest Riflemans released to date.
Highly anticipated and sought after, Riflemans Chardonnay is in any conversation of New Zealand's finest white wines, often being refered to as liquid gold. It's always an ethereal experience with the 2016 already being touted as even better than the much lauded 2013 vintage.
Bob Campbell MW writes "97 Points Impressively pure and powerful chardonnay with salty, mineral, grapefruit, citrus, bran biscuit and cashew nut flavours. A very classy wine that’s complex and linear. Layered flavours are supported by tangy acidity that helps drive a lingering finish. Will age well."
