Spade Oak Vineyard ‘Vigneron’ Chardonnay 2015 Gisborne
A very interesting Chardonnay bouquet with aromas of citrus and apple then white peach and sulphide complexity, a creamy almost yoghurt-like layer and vanilla scents of oak with a mild toasty quality. On the palate – crisp, creamy texture with flavours of peach and lemon then apple and oak spice, the vanilla, sulphide and oak attributes return. A lovely wine with a lengthy finish. Balanced and well made. Drink now and through 2024.
