Description

The Fine Wine Delivery team were blown away when we tried this wine. From the Ngatarawa triangle, grown on 23 year old vines, it is a Chardonnay which showcases just how good the 2018 vintage was. A classic vintage, hot and dry, led to ripe and intensely concentrated grapes. Fermented in French barriques with lees stirring, the wine spent 10 months in those barrels before they were transferred to older barrels for another 8 months to ensure balanced oak characters.

Smells

Powerful fruit, peach, nectarine and lemon zest, with vanilla and spice complexity.

Tastes

The palate does not disappoint, with stonefruit and citrus dialled all the way up. The oak spice and vanilla characters are more gentle, while the texture is spot on and the finish long and luxurious. While it is drinking excellently now, it would be evolve beautifully until 2024+. Enjoy with apricot stuff pork loin or a creamy butternut squash fettuccini.
