Blank Canvas Reed Vineyard Chardonnay 2019

Blank Canvas Reed Chardy 19

A Marlborough wine, from the Reed Vineyard in the Waihopai Valley, hand-picked and indigenous yeast fermentation. Pale lemon-gold in the glass, with an intense complexity on the nose, not pulling any punches. A struck-match reductivity gives way to ripe peach, grapefruit, green olive, lemon rind, baguette and orange blossom aromas. Concentrated, youthful and tightly coiled, showing smoky oak barrel flavours and tannin, carried by a deliciously peppery acidity. As you progress from the pure latency of the opening, there’s a mealy, savoury texture that envelops in a lush, mouthfilling depth. Finishes long and poised, everything coming together in a fine balance. 95pts
