Pegasus Bay Chardonnay 2017 Waipara Valley, North Canterbury
A great bouquet - intense and forward - no mistaking the baking spices and roasted cashew attack then aromas of sweet grapefruit, lemon, white peach and minerality. On the palate - full-bodied and full-on with a powerful core of flavours from baked custard and brulée to citrus and apple to stone fruits and baking spices. Plenty of oak, toastiness and acidity to play with. A long finish with some fine oak tannins and great complexity. Drink now and through 2028.
