Cable Bay Waiheke Island Chardonnay 2015

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Northland & Auckland
Review Date : 15-Oct-2016
The first Waiheke Chardonnay made under winemaker Chloe Somerset’s sole charge. Fully barrel-fermented with wild yeasts, the wine spending 12 months in 33% new oak with 10% MLF. Bright lemon-straw colour, this has a fine and refreshing nose showing citrussy fruit and nutty oak detail, the aromatics tightly bound, and still with much to develop. Very fresh, near zesty on the palate, the acidity quite a feature, the palate tightly concentrated with citrus and nutty flavour, the oak growing in expression. This is very long on the finish. Chloe’s preference in style is for fine and fresh, elegant wines, rather than broader bottlings. She has achieved this with this Chardonnay. 18.0+/20 Oct 2016 RRP $40.00
