Impressive wine delivering power and an array of flavours with appealing subtelty. Chardonnay with weight and good mouth feel plus a reasonably soft texture. Rich and warming thanks, at least in part, to a generous alcohol level of 14% vol.
Tasted: Mar 2010 Closure: S'cap Average price: NZD $28 (~USD $23)
