80/100, 3 stars. Bob Campbell, Master of Wine
“Light, mellow Chardonnay with a hint of heat on the finish. Subtle oak but with some attractive nutty yeast lees character that is even more dominant than the wine’s subtle citrus fruit flavours." Bob Campbell
This Nelson Chardonnay has citrus, ripe peach and vanilla on the nose with an underlying smoky oak seasoning. On the palate, fruity pineapple, peach and citrus are the stars of the show with nutty lees and toasty oak playing the supporting role. Hints of crème caramel linger on the finish of this very versatile food wine.
