Matawhero Church House barrel fermented Chardonnay 2011 Gisborne 12.5%
N: Perfumed, floral with sweet scented fruits – citrus peel especially orange then as the wine opens up there is apple, peach and suggestions of brulee and mild scented oak – very cool!
4 Stars

P: The lees and barrel notes now reveal themselves with texture and light vanillin flavours. The citrus – orange, and now lemon edge emerge. Medium to medium+ acidity, feminine in nature overall. Balanced, dry finish, medium length. I like this wine and am keen to taste it again in 12 months.
4 Stars
