Mills Reef Wines Reserve Chardonnay 2012 Hawke's Bay 13.5%
Nose: The smokey tones of oak remind me a little of Scotch (single malt of course) is such a youthful wine; fresh and cooked stone fruits of peach and yellow nectarine then suggestions of butterscotch and raw brown sugar.
Palate: Chardonnay fans will be pleased with this; a little creaminess in the texture, but plenty of fruit and vanilla laced oak, medium+(ish) acidity, oak spice notes and medium complexity and finish.
Nice! A lovely wine to drink on its own or with food.
