Kim Crawford Unoaked Chardonnay 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

"If you like Chardonnay with true expression of fruit then this is one to love! This wine does not hide behind any oak. It’s a crisp wine that tastes of the succulence and freshness of the grape.The grapes for this wine are from selected vineyards in Marlborough and Hawke’s Bay on the East Coast of New Zealand. These Chardonnay grapes were selected to create an approachable, and fruit-forward, unoaked-style Chardonnay. Exposure of the bunches to sunlight is imperative to our style, which is ripe and fruit driven. Canopy management reflects the desired flavour profile. Clone selection is important in this style as we seek intense stone fruit and pear flavours, coupled with powerful and strong citrus characters. Secondary malolactic fermentation gives nuttiness and generous mouthfeel." -Winemaker's Notes

Kim Crawford Wines:
One of the reasons why New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs have taken the world by storm. Delightful to the point of exuberance, this is a great wine for drinking alone of with lighter fare.

Fruity and acidic with a smooth finish. Everything I look for in a good white.
