This cool climate chardonnay has all the characteristics you would expect from this area. Pear, melon and floral tones are all in the complex but subtle bouquet. This transpires into a clean but complex medium bodied palate. Stone fruits and melon are complemented by clean astringent acid, leading to a long well balanced finish. Cellar for 3 to 5 years to get the best of this wine. Stephen Read.
