Jackson Estate Chardonnay Marlborough 2007
This single vineyard wine was named for the large shelterbelt of trees separating the grounds of the Jackson Estate homestead from the vineyard. Bright citrus fruit and spice together with waves of savoury lees driven aromatics flow to a generously fruited and finely textured palate. A lovely core of ripe calcerous acidity lends the wine great tension, balance and length, and frames the wonderful fruit purity of this single vineyard site.
Light, crisp tropical fruit nose. At the vineyard, it's warmer during the day but cool at night, lending the tropical fruit flavors but still keeping it a crisp wine. Good creaminess on the palate with a fresh acidity. Definitely have with food. Great selection.
