Elegant chardonnay

Nautilus Estate Chardonnay 2016, Marlborough, NZD $35.00

Classy chardonnay with quite intense white peach, citrus, bran biscuit, subtle ginger and spicy oak flavours. A silken-textured wine with impressive length and purity. Supremely elegant chardonnay that can be appreciated now but might benefit from a little bottle age. (Screwcap)
