Black Estate Home Chardonnay 2016 North Canterbury
A mix of oak, fruit and minerality and as the wine unfolds these attributes begin to ease together finding a more integrated harmony. On the palate - an intense attack of fruit and oak spice - these too ease after several taste samples; flavours of yellow peach and ripe red apple, grapefruit and vanilla; medium+ acidity and weight; a youthful and engaging expression. Drink now if decanted otherwise from mid 2018 through 2025.
