Clear light canary core with a very pale rim. Flint, minerals, pineapples and hazelnut cream on the nose. Clean and crisp with similar flavours on the palate. Elegant and restrained. Medium to medium-plus acid and length. Juicy; slightly spicy finish. Another excellent example of NZ chardonnay which didn’t see an overt use of oak. In fact, it was quite Chablis like.
