Archangel Wines Chardonnay 2018 Central Otago
A precise and full bouquet with aromas and flavours of oak & baking spices, yellow stone fruits and stony soil mineral notes. Soft rounded texture on the palate with moderate acidity and flavours that mirror the notes. As the wine opens up the mineral component seems to open up adding complexity and a little intrigue. Weighty, fruity and balanced with a dry finish. Youthful and food friendly attributes. Drink now and through 2024.
Archangel Pinot Noir 2014 Central Otago
Distinctive , vibrant, varietal and fruity bouquet. Aromas of raspberry and cherry, dried berry fruits, loads of spice and mineral at the core. Still very youthful on the palate with a abundant tannins and medium+ acidity, fruit flavours of raspberry, plum and cherry, no mistaking the wood spice and energy. Soft dried herb of thyme and lavender, some brown baking spice moments and floral notes. Lengthy youthful finish. A wine still in developing stages so don’t rush to drink. Best from 2021 through 2027+
