Lake Road Chardonnay - Gisborne 2020 - Barrel Fermented
A beautiful Gisborne Chardonnay, 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.
"Gorgeously ripe and complex, the wine shows apricot, rockmelon, vanilla oak and brioche characters on the nose, followed by a creamy palate offering succulent fruit flavours together with rounded mouthfeel and juicy acidity. It is supple and lingering with plenty of tasty flavours. Enjoy now until 2025."
