Best Buy - Winestate, May 2019

Buyers Guide 2019 - Michael Cooper
“Partly barrel-fermented, this wine offers good value. Light lemon/green, it is full-bodied, with very good depth of peachy, slightly toasty flavours, and fresh acidity keeping things lively. Drink now or cellar.” Michael Cooper, March 2019

Winemakers Notes
"Vintage 2017 was lovely in Gisborne, especially the early part of it, when the Chardonnay was harvested. We were able to pick clean fruit with good sugar levels. The juice commenced ferment in tank and then was run off to a mixture of seasoned American and French barrels to complete ferment. The wine then stayed in barrel, on gross lees, for a number of months."

Mmmmm...My oh my this looks good! And what a price tag.

If you are looking for a complete style Chardonnay, packed with stonefruit characters, creamy buttery textures and toasty oak. You really need this in your life.

Gisborne Chardonnay at its best!
