PODERI CRISCI CHARDONNAY 2016/2014

Wine Region: New Zealand

Grapes: Chardonnay

Tasting Notes

What ensues is an elegant young Chardonnay with a flirtatious light straw colour. Incredibly complex, flinty nose with dried lemon and orange rind, offering hints of freshly grilled nuts (almond) and marzipan alongside zests of citrus fruits.. The palate is very rich and full with enormous weight, pure fruit with faint underlying barrel aging characters. A very finely structured wine with a good drive leading into a great lingering finish. An unmistakable Burgundian style Chardonnay.
