Wine Of The Week NZ

Bell-Hill-Chardonnay-2012Bell Hill 2012 Chardonnay, North Canterbury NZD $100

Remarkable Chardonnay with a character all of its own. Strong chalky, mineral flavours with citrus, lemon, a hint of wild flowers, nutty lees and spicy oak characters. Weighty, textural and silken-smooth wine with extraordinary length of flavour. Should age very well indeed, although it is very appealing right now. (Screwcap)
