Pegasus Bay Main Divide Chardonnay Waipara New Zealand White 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Fresh and clean on the nose though you have to wait for some sulfur to blow. Once it does, there are lovely notes of pithy citrus and white orchard fruits that are well defined and framed with nuanced hickory and oak notes. Fresh on the palate if a touch viscous, this remains nicely balanced with a fine expression of white peach and lemon fruit. Gains some nuttiness on the back end before finishing a bit short with a somewhat oily texture. 89pts
