2014 Greywacke Chardonnay

FWD Co. Panel f96

Description

Every year Greywacke is among the finest Chardonnays in New Zealand and this 2014 vintage seems to have put on some serious weight over the summer. Usually more of a fine style of Chardonnay with complex minerals, this is almost Meursault like with big, fat, rich mid-palate but still the flinty, mineral notes Greywacke drinkers prize. A glorious Chardonnay with all sorts of X Factor, it might be a change of style but we think it's even better than it has been!

Smells

Big, rich nose showing vanilla, peach, nougat, smoky French oak and a fresh herbal note reminiscent of a dry summer hay paddock. Highly evocative, perhaps even provocative...

Tastes

Creamy butterscotch and peach, with arrowroot biscuit notes and hints of custard leading to an incredibly long finish. Undoubtedly the best Greywacke Chardonnay we've tasted, this wine will sell out fast so if you're reading this... grab a case before it's gone. Enjoy in its youth or cellar 5-8 years from vintage for best results.
