Pegasus Bay Chardonnay 2015 Waipara Valley
A powerful bouquet led by aromas of oak with caramel and burnt butter, oak spices of vanilla and clove, a brazil nut toastiness then stone fruits of peach and nectarine, overall quite complex, but also quite loud. On the palate - quite intense, creamy, fruity and nutty, peach and nectarine flavours, loads of spicy butterscotch and raw brown sugar oak, fine oak tannins, medium+ acidity, full-bodied and quite 'full-on'. A powerhouse wine that will feed the enthusiasm of many chardonnay fans. Drink now and through 2025.
