This is the middle level bottling from this superb winery in New Zealand.  Although New Zealand is not normally known for Chardonnay this wine makes spectacular bottlings especially their single vineyard offerings.  Pale silvery/gold in color, clear and bright.  The nose is great with nice minerality and slight grapefruit.  On the palate, this is clean and very lively. Lemony with underlying minerals.  Some grapefruit on the finish.  Still young of course, this should continue to drink well for at least five to seven more years and likely more.  It will go very nicely with grilled veggies or even chicken salad.  Also, it drinks great on its own.
