Silken chardonnay

Ashwell Vineyards Chardonnay 2015, Martinborough, NZD $28

Silken-textured chardonnay with impressive weight, purity and concentration that’s assisted by a moderately high alcohol. Ripe tree fruit, peach and melon flavours, with a seasoning of oak and nutty yeast lees. Delicious wine. (Screwcap)
