Three Ducks Gisborne Chardonnay 2016
From the national homeland of Chardonnay, this is obviously chardonnay but with a modern twist.
Three parcels of ripe fruit, fermented and aged on full lees with varying degrees of solids and MLF but no oak has resulted in a modern-edged wine with obvious varietal hallmarks. Funk and toast notes, flint and grapefruit plus some complexity with a nice toasty finish. It's all there!
Santa Julia Reserva Chardonnay 2015
A beautiful Western Argentinian Chardonnay, produced in the Uco Valley which lies along the Tunuyán River, south of Mendoza city. This international beauty has aromas of white fruits, apples and tropical fruits combined with own notes maturing in barrels as vanilla and coconut, with a creamy entry, balanced acidity and good volume.
Vidal Vineyard Selection Hawkes Bay Chardonnay 2016
Fruit-driven and vibrant balanced palate. Fresh, flavoursome and long.
Marlborough Vineyards Chardonnay 2016
A single vineyard wine from the heart of the Wairau Valley and a very special site. 2016 saw lovely harvest conditions through late Autumn and the vine age here helps deliver weight and concentration. This wine shows classic varietal elements with some modern influences.
