Sandihurst Chardonnay Waipara 2006
The wine is a Chardonnay in the Chablis mould - a serious cool climate style white wine made without the influence of oak but with the additional complexity of lees ageing. Ripe citrus and tropical fruit dominate the nose. The mouth feel is generous with plenty of creamy texture from lees stirring. Fine natural acidity is well balanced by the palate weight and a sliver of residual sweetness which contributes to the wine's lengthy finish.
