Matawhero Church House Barrel Fermented Chardonnay 2015 Gisborne
Characterful bouquet of Chardonnay with a complex nose of cashew oak and apple, mild vanilla spice and peach, some light yoghurt-like/cheese layer adding complexity. On the palate - juicy, ripe, fresh and creamy with layers of vanilla and oak flavours underpinning flavours of stonefruits, apple and a little citrus, some oak tannins and the acidity add texture and length. Overall a very nice example.
