John Forrest Collection Waitaki Valley Chardonnay 2008 13.5%
Nose and Palate: Cool climate and terroir suggestions of quartz and schist first then light white florals witha smokey and youthful mood.
The palate promotes the youthful features of the wine first with a vibrant acidity, mild creamy texture and citrus then more traditional chardonnay peach and stone fruits flavors. Great balance and length. A food wine through 2012 then anythings goes.
