This mixed dozen is a terrific-value journey through three New Zealand wine-growing areas producing similarly-styled Chardonnay, but with interesting regional differences.

 

Karikari Calypso Northland Chardonnay 2014:

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.

Alcohol: 14.0%

 

Harakeke Farm Nelson Chardonnay 2015:

Tasting Note: Nectarine and peach notes are complimented by attractive oak aromas. Concentrated stonefruit and an elegant texture from the oak are given focus by the underlying acidity. Hand-harvested with low crop levels. Wild ferment in 500L French Oak Puncheon. Partial malolactic fermentation with lees stirring during its 11 months in barrel.

Alcohol: 14.0%

 

Rock Ferry 3rd Rock Marlborough Chardonnay 2016:

Tasting Note: This Chardonnay has an intriguing bouquet of toasted walnut, nougat, & nectarine with distinctive notes of vanilla bean & lemon curd. A little crème brûlée on the palate with generous stone fruit flavours & a persistent line of acidity; laced with toasty, walnut complexities, the wine finishes dry & austere.

Alcohol: 13.5%
