2010 Neudorf Nelson Chardonnay Nelson $30

Waxy yellow apple aromas emerge over toasty, vanilla cream and lightly gingery base notes. On the palate this is bright and intense with ripe fruit, but at the same time light and focused. This does turn a little creamy on back end, but the wildly bright and vibrant nature of this is fleshed out a bit by the creaminess. This finishes with long, sapid, solid citrus fruits and a touch of peach. A lovely wine that manages to be rich and fruity without being too fruity- it remains transparent right through the gently quartzy finale. Long and very fine. 92pts
