91/100 | Candice Chow, Raymond Chan Wine Reviews
Summerhouse have done it again with another luscious, lightly oaked Marlborough Chardonnay which has seriously impressed the Advintage Chardy fan club. And at sub $20, we know it's going to impress you too.
Candice Chow, Raymond Chan wine reviews writes "Bright, pale straw-yellow with some depth and a green hue, lighter on edge. The nose is soft with an elegant scent of stonefruit citrus intermix a light note of vanilla cream and a hint of almond. Medium-full bodied, more expressive on the palate, peaches and nectarines along with a little grapefruit interweave almond biscuit, vanilla cream. An elegant, fine-textured phenolic line added to the mouthfeel, linger with nutty nuances to a sustained, satisfying finish. Match with baked chicken pie and quiche lorraine over the next 3 years."
The winery writes "Our chardonnay has a classic golden shimmer and aromas of juicy nectarine and honeydew melon. Rich and luscious in flavour with a subtle oak influence, each sip is fresh and delicately balanced"
