2015 Vigneron Chardonnay, 750ml
Chardonnay’s what made Gisborne famous and one sip of this and you’ll see why. Complex with layered citrus- and stone fruit aromas, lifted by savoury yeast and nutty oak characters, the palate sensation is both fresh and textured. The wine delivers Gisborne’s bold elegance with a long and seamless finish. Ripe and weighty fruit flavours without the heat of excess alcohol. Big wine, beautiful wine, with a taste that will linger for ages.
Colour: Lemon lime, slowly developing a golden hue with three years’ bottle age.
Aromas: Melon, white peach, roasted nuts and grilled lemon, vanilla and fresh-baked bread.
Palate: Fresh peaches and cream texture with a tight citric lemony acidity that freshens and lengthens the palate.
