This was a gift from my neighbor who hand-delivered the bottle from NZ himself! Kudos to him!! Anyhow, I don't generally indulge in Chardonnay, unless food is present, like seared scallops in a basil-cream sauce, or something rich. But, I will say, this is quite lovely. Definitely has some French oak on the nose, but light, with a bit of buttery dough aroma from being on fermentation lees for 10 months (got that off the bottle, folks). Soft mouth-feel, light straw color, wonderful finish, very smooth and velvety. OK flavor: starts with a little light butterscotch, ripe peach, soft citrus, develops into a toasted almond or cashew flavor on the finish. wow, long finish.... I'm sipping it now, LOL. Strongly recommend!


Winemaker's Notes:

Vibrant green in colour, the nose delivers peach and tropical fruits complemented by creamy cashew complexity and lovely French oak. The palate is weighty and full, rich and viscous. Intense fruit lingers, combining with subtle French oak to form a complex and powerful wine.
