Richmond Plains Nelson Chardonnay 2011 13.5%
N: plenty to think about here with toasted vanilla pod, roasted peach and hints of butterscotch; a little citrus and apple. Some sulphides action adds a nice layer of complexity.
P: Reflects the nose with peach and vanilla flavors then a nutty and roasted stone fruit appeal; plenty but not too much oak flavor adding texture; medium/medium+ acidity; dry balanced and with medium+ length. A lovely example.
