Grove Mill Wairau Valley Marlborough Chardonnay 2017

NZ$20

Already delicious, this fragrant, mouthfilling wine was French oak-matured for 10 months.   Bright, light lemon/green, it shows good freshness and complexity, with generous, ripe, stonefruit flavours and a dry, persistent finish.  Fine value.

Auntsfield Cob Cottage Southern Valleys Marlborough Chardonnay 2016

NZ$48

Weighty and creamy-textured, this single block wine combines power and elegance.   A very ‘complete’ wine, it has highly concentrated citrus and stonefruit flavours, mealy, biscuity notes adding complexity, and lovely vibrancy and depth.
