Pale lemon in colour. Some Struck Match mealy character and citrus. The Entry Level Chardonnay for one of New Zealand’s best. Their Mates Vineyard is in the 1001 wines. A good balance between opulence and elegance. Good drinking now but will keep 3 to 5 years. Drank again with consistent notes 10 weeks later Excellent quality as an Entry Level Chardonnay. Tasted 10 weeks later with consistent notes. It really is a good Chardonnay particularly for Entry Level.

Great complexity and balance. Big oak on the nose but clean apple and pear fruit on the pallet. Very fresh tasting.
