Another wonderful Chardonnay from this producer in New Zealand. These are world class Chardonnays. Golden in color, clear and bright. Enticing nose of char/smoke with grapefruit and great minerality. Medium to full bodied. Sleek but muscular texture. On the palate, this is very concentrated, but unwinds in the glass. Citrus; yellow grapefruits with some lemon/lime notes but also great underlying minerality. Perfect balance. Long finish. While this could certainly use a few more years of cellaring, it is delicious now. Drink over the next twenty years. Great on its own, this will be very food friendly as well. It would work well with grilled swordfish.
