Stoney River Chardonnay - Gisborne 2021
This chardonnay shows characters of ripe nectarine and lemon. Subtle toast and butterscotch notes round out the bouquet. Drinking beautifully now and over the next couple of years and ideal with fish and white meats.
"Beautifully ripe and nicely fragrant on the nose showing yellow peach, rockmelon, nougat and cashew characters, followed by a supple palate that's succulent and smooth. It's harmonious and creamy with a lengthy juicy finish."
2020 Vintage - "It's gently lifted on the nose showing crunchy apple, grapefruit and subtle oatmeal notes, leading to a juicy palate that offers smooth mouthfeel and refreshing acidity, finishing crisp and lingering." - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
