Description

Demand for big, rich and creamy Californian Chardonnays is through the roof, and when we can get a serious example to sub $20 we struggle to keep up with demand. This Monterey Peninsula grown 2017 Pacificana has come to our shores for the first time ever and our FWD Co. panel were mightily impressed and snapped it up as a NZ exclusive for our customers. The warm days of Monterey ripen the fruit perfectly and the cool coastal night time breezes elevate the levels of natural acidity to give the wine important structure. Barrel fermented, aged on lees, then stir in the perfect amount of American oak and you end up with a beautifully fresh fruited Chardonnay laced with vanilla, butterscotch and toast in a creamy, salivating palate. US$17... it's a brilliant buy at FWD Co.'s sub $20NZ price.

Smells

Ripe yellow-fleshed stone fruit, namely peach, nectarine and apricot, intertwined with butter popcorn, pineapple and vanilla.

Tastes

Beautifully fresh and pure fruit infused with rich, creamy oak and lees stirring inspired tastes of butterscotch, vanilla, subtle toast and roasted nut. Creamy rich winemaking elements combined with judicious elegance and structure... serve to a wide range of Chardonnay drinkers and you'll make them all happy. Enjoy through 2021.
