Very oaky, but fruit still shows. Butter. Big body, medium acid. Light effervescence? Malo-y. Simple quaffer.
External Reviews for Nobilo Chardonnay Gisborne Icon
Wine Tasting NotesLight straw in color with green hues. Brilliant clarity. An appealing combination of ripe stone fruit, toasted vanillin oak and creamy malolactic influences. An elegant, medium bodied chardonnay, showing excellent palate weight and balance. flavors of peach and nectarine are complemented by the soft, creamy characters of malolactic fermentation. Oak maturation and yeast lees contact has infused a toasty, nutty complexity. The finish lingers warm and dry.
