Matawhero Chardonnay Gisborne 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Fruit-driven on the nose with notes of tropical fruits and lemon custard, with just a touch of mineral, dusty soil tones. On entry, this seems a little sweet with an early touch of old wood and a weird mid-palate that loses focus. This does turn fairly viscous on the slightly candied mid-palate, which is not very fruity but quite ripe. The finish surprises with tons of minerality lending a steely edge to parry the ripe fig fruit on the finish. 85pts
