“Inviting aromas of golden peach, mango, toasted nut and nougat lead to a succulent palate that is generously weighted and textured. The wine offers delectable fruit flavours together with creamy mouthfeel and spicy oak undertones, finishing long and smooth.” – Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
“Grown in Northland, the 2014 vintage is fragrant and softly mouthfilling, with finely integrated oak and generous, ripe, peachy, slightly spicy flavours. It’s an excellent example of the powerful northern style.” – Michael Cooper
Tasting Note: Dry and mineral-inflected without sacrificing on power. Citrus and stone fruit aromas follow through on the soft, refined palate. Fine and refreshing, crisp in the finish with a pleasing amount of oak influence – more complex than your typical easy-drinking style of Chardonnay, but so charming in character that it’s hard to resist.
Region: Northland, New Zealand
