Fantastic, Puligny-esque nose.
24H Update: Flint, faint toasty oak, dried lemon pith, dehydrated white peaches; Salted tangerine, dried lemon, candied pineapple, lime zest. Wow, very good. — a month ago
Trying to think which Australian regions produce Chardonnay like this and I would say Margaret River - like Art Series Chardonnay. An excellent new World Chardie - see previous notes. Well balanced oak with stone fruit notes skilfully made by Michael Brajkovich MW. — 6 months ago
The description: The 2022 Pinque has classic strawberries and cream characters along with watermelon and a touch of Szechuan pepper. The 2022 vintage was warm and dry and correspondingly this wine is relatively low in acid making for a very smashable wine, although like all our wines there is plenty of subtle complexity to delight the taster. Enjoy! The opinion: in total agreement.

A well done old world styled nz Chardonnay. Fresh fruited, some leesy notes, a small oak hint. All pretty balanced and with a medium long finish. Critics: ‘as good as Puligny or even better’ were a bit high on own supply I guess but this is very nice and a perfect alternative for Bourgogne blanc. — 5 months ago
