Desert Heart

Desert Heart 'Enlightenment' Chardonnay Bannockburn 2011 Central Otago 14%
N: Lots and lots of Chardonnay fruits with sweet creamy peaches and sweet apple laced with a creamy vanillin oak suggestions.

P: Flavors reflect the nose with a smooth and slow unfurling; the stone fruit signature is at the core of this wine with a little bottle development adding a layer of complexity; medium+ acidity adds freshness and bite; slightly elevated alcohol does add some warmth, but well managed adding to the lengthy finish. Overall a lovely wine.
