Pegasus Bay 'Virtuoso' Chardonnay 2013 Waipara Valley - Canterbury
A powerful, rich and full bouquet of stone fruit, oak and spice: baked peach and nectarine with white spiced oak, new oak and a distinctive savoury/leesy complexity - even a flint-like edge. On the palate - dry, firm, youthful and intense with fabulous Chardonnay flavours of ripe peach and stone fruits, grapefruit, nutty oak and loads of texture; cashew, grapefruit peel, lees and some sulphide-like suggestions; full-bodied and rich. Great wine!
