Gem Gisborne Chardonnay 2007
N: Familiar sweet and generous aromas of well chosen oak matched to the delicious, deep yellow stone fruits, a hint of butterscotch and popcorn. A wiff of French Vanilla Ice-cream (oak) completes the bouquet.
P: Yum! I really like the Chablis chalky, crushed vitamin flavors and textures melded with the spice and nuttiness of oak. The fruit flavors fill out the palate and medium acidity keeps the wine youthful and generous. Medium+ complexity and one for the cellar (drink now to 2014) - my kind of Chardonnay. 4.5 Stars.
