Delicious toasted toast and nutty influence on the nose with fresh pineapple fruit. Excellent buttery texture on the palate with an amazing creamy texture and refreshing long lasting finish.
Powerful Chardonnay from the fantastic Hawkes Bay region of New Zealand. The vineyard is located in the Gimblett gravels region behind Taradale. It provides the ideal vineyard location on an old riverbed and is not too far from the sea so it is cooled by ocean breezes yet heat is also retained in the gravel which helps ripen grapes at night.
A gorgeous golden wine that made me fall asleep on the sofa!
£7.99 from Oddbins.
