2017 Pencarrow Chardonnay

Superb value from one of NZ's most iconic producers

Description

Pencarrow Chardonnay is grown and made on the iconic Palliser Estate in Martinborough. Although its quality has been consistent over many years, the last few vintages have really stepped up. The quality of the barrel fermentation and maturation program is impressive and appropriate given the quality of the estate fruit used. The judicious combination of French and American oak has added that creamy, vanilla inspiration that Chardonnay lovers are enjoying and the palate retains a level of sophistication greater than many NZ producers can manage in their premier label.

Smells

Initially notes of spiced peach, citrus blossom and nougat are to the fore while a second swirl reveals notes of roasted nuts and butterscotch.

Tastes

If the nose didn't wow you enough, the palate certainly will and lovers of fuller, richer styles will adore this wine's creamy character and soft succulent finish. Enjoy with pork, chicken or veal between now and the end of 2020.
