Obsidian ‘Estate’ Waiheke Island Chardonnay 2017

11-Jan-2018

Obsidian Vineyard was established in 1993, and produced a single Bordeaux-varietalled wine until 2000, when a second label was introduced, and a selection of other varieties was planted. There are 9 ha of vines on the 17 ha property, and Mike Wood, with the company since 2005, produces around 4,000 cases of high quality wine from the fruit managed by Tim Adams. The estate fruit is supplemented by Pinot Gris and Chardonnay from another Island site. In my opinion, the wines figure among the leaders from Waiheke Island. There has been a rationalising of the wines into the more accessible, but still serrious ‘Estate’ range and the flagship ‘Reserve’ tier. Here, I review the new 2017 ‘Estate’ Chardonnay. www.obsidian.co.nz
