2009 Te Mania Chardonnay Nelson $30

Pretty full barrel fermented nose here with lots of fresh oak-derived aromas accenting slightly roasted apple fruit. This is a touch a buttermilky in the mouth with an opulent, soft texture and a supple easy character. Notes of toasted bread dough on the mid-palate add some complexity that builds with layers of lime oil and red apple fruit on the back end. This finishes with nice length in a decidedly dry style with good balance. 90pts
