Reserved aromatically though, with air, motes of green melon and lemon curd emerge from the glass with gentle suggestions of flowers, minerals, machine oil and a hint of flinty smoke adding subtlety. In the mouth this is very precise and fairly firm, with a modest scale but real ethereal feel. The flavor profile is reserved and balanced with a nice minerally earth base and gorgeous bitter apple fruits that reverberate on the long finish. Lovely. 92pts

The 2007 Moutere Chardonnay has a very refined bouquet with notes of dried pineapple, dried mango and apricot, all with great precision. The palate has a creamy entry but the oak is well judged with good acidity. Touches of butterscotch inflecting the minerally finish. Superb length — this is a classy number.

A full-bodied, flamboyant version of this benchmark bottling, the 2007 verges on too much, with lush tropical fruit framed by smoky notes and finishing spicy and slightly warm. Unlikely to have the longevity of the 2008, it’s a bold, extroverted Chard ideal for drinking over the next year or two.

A full-bodied, flamboyant version of this benchmark bottling, the 2007 verges on too much, with lush tropical fruit framed by smoky notes and finishing spicy and slightly warm. Unlikely to have the longevity of the 2008, itandrsquo;s a bold, extroverted Chard ideal for drinking over the next year or two.


Winemaker's Notes:

Since founding the estate in 1978 on the north-facing slopes of the Moutere Valley, at the top of the South Island, Tim and Judy Linn have created an international reputation for all their wines: Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon and Riesling. The vineyards are dry farmed on gravelly, clay-rich soils. Nelson is one of the sunniest parts of New Zealand and the warm summers, extending into cooler autumn nights, produce intense and rich-textured wines. The Chardonnay resembles perhaps more closely Burgundy than anything else from New Zealand. This Chardonnay has an elegant and linear quality reminiscent of fine Chablis. Pale daffodil green yellow in the glass. This wine has vibrant ripe fruit notes on the nose leading into a palate of fresh crusty bread and peach kernel with a finish of river-stone minerality. A wine of individuality and complexity. Open a cool bottle, start shucking oysters and begin humming.
