From the ‘Tiger’ and ‘Viper’ vineyards, comes this Central Otago Chardonnay. Classic, elegant aromas of lemon, croissant, chamomile and spring flowers. Wider on the medium-bodied palate, with ripe stonefruit, red apple and mandarin peel carried on a brisk, citric acidity.
Nice line and energy, focussed on fruit and texture – not much oak intruding. Texturally complex and lithe, with more baking spice and brioche at the back of the palate. The finish is long and shows a saline, mineral character just at the end. 91pts.
