Tantalus 'Cachette' Reserve Chardonnay 2016 Waiheke Island
An almost sweet bouquet with a distinctive aroma of new oak and ripe fruit with white and yellow peach then some baked citrus and brown baking spices. Bold and intense palate with a rich and creamy texture; flavours of burnt butter and vanilla oak laced with wood spice. Full-bodied, youthful and dry with some no holds barred moments. Fruit flavours from the nose return maintaining intensity and drive. A wine needing some cellar time to find its happy place. Best from 2019 through 2026.
