FIVE STARS 18.5/20 | Raymond Chan
Over the past 20 years Ant McKenzie has crafted fantastic wines for some of the biggest names in New Zealand wine - Dry River, Framingham, Mud House, Te Awa and Spy Valley. Now, under his own banner, he has created a multi-tier range of wines with Theory and Practice range pitched as "contemporary wines with a creative edge" .
Somewhat ironically, this robust Chardonnay bucks the modern trend and shows all the stonefruit, buttery, oaky and creamy characteristics that traditional Chardonnay lovers adore. A new classic.Highly recommended.
Raymond Chan writes "FIVE STARS. This is a rich and plush Chardonnay with stonefruit and tropical fruit melded with creamy and nutty oak on a seamlessly smooth-flowing palate. Match with roasted poultry and pork over the next 4+ years."
