2015 Cable Bay Waiheke Chardonnay

Description

Winemaker Chloe Parkinson speaks proudly of the ripeness levels here vineyards are able to achieve at lower brix (sugar) levels, allowing her to craft elegant, taut styles like this 2014 Cable Bay Waiheke Chardonnay. Barrel fermented in 21% new oak, it's an awesome wine while young, but look for it to be at its best about 5 years from vintage and good for another 5+ from there.

Smells

A whiff of gunsmoke and sizzled almonds, with citrus, grapefruit, blood orange and white peach.

Tastes

Taut and focused, with intense citrus and stonefruit acidity, all fleshed about by biscuity, creamy lees and barrel ferment influences, leading through a fresh and satisfying finish. Superb Chardonnay to enjoy with fresh seafood and poultry between now and 2024.
