Classy chardonnay

Te Whare Ra Chardonnay 2015, Marlborough, NZD $40

Classy chardonnay in a youthful, vibrant style with grapefruit, citrus, toast, wholemeal and subtle spicy oak flavours. It’s a little closed right now but should develop well in bottle. Subtle power with purity and an ethereal texture. (Screwcap)
