CJ Pask 2009 Hawke's Bay Gimblett Road Chardonnay 13%
N: A complex mix of integration and youthful fruit aromas; layers of oak complexity are intertwined with fresh and roasted stone fruit especially peach; vanillin and hazelnut like suggestions.
P: Full-bodied, dry and quite rich in flavor. The flavors reflect the roasted fruits and oka nuances suggested above. A balanced wine with a drink now medium+ to long finish. Plenty of complexity to keep the palate enticed through 2013.
