Concentrated chardy

Te Kairanga John Martin Chardonnay 2015, Martinborough, NZD $37

This flagship chardonnay shows far more concentration, complexity and richness than the regular label. Ripe stone fruit flavours at its core with attractive bready, nutty characters plus an influence of spicy oak. Weighty, seamless wine – a masterful chardonnay. (Screwcap)
