2010 Millton Opou Chardonnay Gisborne $35

Sweet and honied on the nose and dripping with pear fruit framed by light butterscotch and toasted almond notes, with hints of pollen and dried pressed flowers. Rather light-bodied at first with a touch of tannin adding texture to the mid-palate. showing fine apple fruit with a hint of honey. There is lovely clarity and brightness to the fruit, though the back end does show a riper side to this with hints of quince paste that appear on the finish as well. 91pts
