The Prospect

The Prospect 'Winemaker's Favourite' Chardonnay 2014 Gisborne (Ormond/Patutahi)
Calm, subtle beginning - then white and yellow stone fruit aromas begin to emerge, complexity and depth from sweet vanillin oak, apple and grapefruit follow. On the palate - dry with plenty of flavour from all the elements described above, creamy textures and firm youthful oak bite, medium+ acidity; coming into balance slowly, fairly lengthy finish and fine complexity building. Take another look -  alovely example of Chardonnay and attention to detail.
