Auntsfield SV Chardonnay 2015 Marlborough
Quite a bold bouquet of spicy wood scents followed by roasted yellow stone fruits; aromas of baking spices, quince and a touch of salty sea air make for a youthful yet complex building package. On the palate – as the nose suggests – youthful and intense with flavours of wood, wood spices, ripe stone fruit then citrus peel, some cashew, quince and saline moments adding depth and character. Plenty of acidity, nearly full-bodied and dry on the finish. A wine that will age well. Drink now and through 2025.
