Circuit Chardonnay 2016 North Canterbury
Produced and bottled by Black Estate Limited
Quite an impact from ripe stone fruit and oak with a significant undercurrant of minerality; fresh oak with toasty spicy vanilla attributes - all quite loud and attention seeking. On the palate - great impact from the fruit and oak; medium+ acidity drawing attention to the minerality, a dry wine with a ripe core of fruit - again stonefruit with a grapefruit peel note, fine oak tannins; plenty of texture and mouth feel; lengthy finsh. Very nice wine!
