Church Road

Church Road Hawke's Bay Chardonnay 2012 13%
N: No mistaking this bouquet as anything other than that of a 'New World' Chardonnay; Precise in its messages of oak (vanilla, brown spices and raw brown sugar), stone fruits (sweet peach), tree and citrus fruits (apple and lemon) all wrapped up in a balloon of creaminess.
P: The palate reflects the nose with the oak spices and peachy fruits in the engine room, warmish (13%) but definitely in keeping with the Church Road style; Dry, medium+ in body and length with the oak again pushing the flavors of Chardonnay. Nice!
3.5 Stars
