Spade Oak Vineyard Voysey Chardonnay Gisborne 2011 12.5%
N: A very familiar collection of chardonnay aromas. Peaches and cream, sweet vanilla and a bite of oak. The slight cheesy note adds a layer of complexity.
P: Medium+ weight, creamy and packed with stonefruit flavours of peach, nectarine and apricot. The vanilla and other oak flavours also return adding the familiar, reliable remoinders of a well made wine. Overall a sound and balanced example with a moderate length and complexity.
