4.5 STARS 91/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
Quality Marlborough Chardonnay and a lovely example the modern, more elegant style supported by some good old fashioned robust palate weight. Partial barrel fermentation in French oak has given this wine a gorgeous texture while the soft acidity on the finish holds your interest throughout. Good wine.
Sam Kim writes "Attractively fruited and fragrant, the bouquet shows ripe peach, fig, lemon peel and subtle vanillin oak characters. The palate delivers lovely weight and fruit intensity together with creamy mouthfeel and bright acidity, finishing beautifully long and flavoursome."
The winery writes "Pure fruit aromas of nectarine and citrus, complemented by delicate floral and savoury notes. Generous on the palate with a delicious dollop of peaches and cream and finely integrated oak."
Will buy another case.
