Aronui Chardonnay SV Nelson 2011 14%
N: A familiar, if not old-fashioned bouquet of sweet fruits and creamy vanillin oak suggestion. The ‘peaches and cream’ with hints of butterscotch and raw sugar will appeal to many.
P: Nice. I like the vibrancy of the acid and oak on the palate. It balances the fruit centred idea on the nose enough to let texture play a bigger role and the bite of acidity adds to the overall length and finish. The creamy vanillin and peachy-ness finishes the wine off nicely.
