2007 Villa Maria Keltern Chardonnay Hawkes Bay $35

Vanilla, pineapple, a blade of grass and buttered toast greet the nose with good intensity and freshness. This is nicely firm in the mouth, very well balanced with a brightness and a roundness that is immediately appealing. In fact, this has excellent balance. The fruit is beautifully expressed, offering shades of ripe citrus, creamy pineapple and a touch of exotic kiwi flavor. Finishing with good drive and freshness in a more peach-driven vein of fruit that covers the present base of wood spice well. At peak and well rounded drinking today. 91pts
