Matawhero 'Church House' 2011 Gisborne Chardonnay Musque 12.2%
N: Quite a lifted and floral bouquet with reminders of 'classic' Chardonnay reminders of sweet peach and red apple. This expression suggests a delicate edgy note of grape - perhaps related to the Musque side of the clone. A hint of raw sugar and no oak to speak of on the nose.
P: Reflects the nose with the peach, apple and spiced fruit flavors; a medium weighted wine with youthful medium+ acidity keeping the palate crisp and vibrant; just dry with a medium finish; Very food friendly friendly and in a 'drink now' style. Balanced and well made.
