Tasman Bay Chardonnay 2010 13%
(Zork closure quite a task to remove)
N: No mistaking the Chardonnay message here – no mistaking the oak either. Stonefruits, apple and vanillin with a popcorn edge.
P: Warm, fruity, dry and oaky. Plenty of stone fruit submerged in oak. Medium acidity and plenty of oak bite. Overall, a balanced wine, but one for lovers of oak first. Moderate complexity.
