Zoom Lake Road Reserve Chardonnay Gisborne 2022

Lake Road Reserve Chardonnay Gisborne 2022


A beautiful Gisborne Chardonnay, presenting white florals, stonefruit and honeydew melon on the nose, backed by subtle French oak on the palate. Medium to full bodied with glorious texture, weight and length, and a delightfully creamy finish. Match with seafood, chicken and pork.


"Ripe, fruity, varietal and enticing bouquet with aromas of buttered peach and baked apple, fresh and roasted cashew nut, burnt butter, nectarine and barrel spices. Near full-bodied as the wine touches the palate, flavours mirror the bouquet with medium acidity, a satin cream mouthfeel and fine tannins. Well made, dry and ready for drinking from 2023 through 2028."

Cameron Douglas - 92 Points, Premium

"Beautifully fruited and inviting, the bouquet shows ripe stone fruit, rockmelon, vanilla and roasted hazelnut aromas. The palate displays lovely weight and rounded mouthfeel, splendidly supported by creamy texture and juicy acidity, making it flavoursome and immediately appealing."
