Astrolabe 'Province' Marlborough Chardonnay 2011 14%
N: An elegant bouquet with sweet citrus, peach, white flowers, dry and wet stone, moderate oak and vanillin layer.
As I swirl the wine more complexity begins to build. A hint of sulphide adds a funky edge - nice!
5 Stars

P: Reflects the nose with flavors of citrus and stone fruit. I really like the ebb and flow of fruit flavors against the oak with citrus pith, a cashew nutty and spicy oak harmony. Medium+ complexity - this is a very cool wine! Long finish.
5 Stars
