Church Road 2002 Cuve Series Chardonnay, Hawke’s Bay, NZ

Church Road Cuve Series Chardonnay 2002, Hawke's Bay, NZBright golden yellow core. Slightly flinty, ripe lemons, nutty, prominent honeyed character and a touch of Brett on the nose. Strong mineral tones with nuances of oak in the background but did not overpower the layers of fruit tones still present in the wine. Med to med+ acidity; med+ to long finish. A surprise really. Still amazingly bright and brimming with life. Can someone send me a plate of deep fried frogs’ legs please?
