Craggy Range Chardonnay 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting Notes :Progressing on to the Chardonnays, the hand-picked, 100% whole-bunch pressed 2007 Kidnappers Vineyard Chardonnay from Hawkes Bay has a wonderful Meursault-like nose with touches of hazelnut and citrus fruits, the palate vibrant, slightly honeyed with that attractive hazelnut theme cropping up on the finish.

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.

Very clean. Crisp finish. Enjoyed with a lightly seasoned tuna.



Tasting Notes:

Medium straw colour streaked with silver hues. Aromatically complex with citrus blossom, lemon zest, peach and baguette crust. This wine is tightly woven with taut acidity providing a tensile line through the palate which allows the complex flavours to unfold slowly. Summer fruits, cashew and faint vanilla spring to mind.
