Ata Rangi ‘Craighall’ Chardonnay 2016, Martinborough
Immediately alluring bouquet – nutty, creamy, lactic, spicy, heirloom lemon, quince, peach and wild yellow flowers; stony mineral undertones. On the palate – a core of flavour and texture entwined in wood spices and mineral under-currant; Quince, yellow stone fruits, red apple, some baking spice and reserved though obvious wood flavours. Medium+ weight, acidity and intensity with a lengthy dry finish. Youthful, charming, a little bit seductive and 100% Chardonnay. Fabulous and finish. Drink now and through 2026.
