Rich, ripe, fleshy Chardonnay that captures the ripe peach regional charm but cleverly embellishes it with spicy oak and yeast lees complexity. Thereâ€™s also emerging toasty bottle complexity adding extra interest. Mouth filling wine thatâ€™s approaching peak form.
Tasted: Aug 2009 Closure: S'cap Average price: NZD $33 (~USD $27)
