Greywacke Marlborough Chardonnay 2016
A wonderfully dry, but rich and powerful Chardonnay
An alluring combination of kumquats, peaches and yellow grapefruit melds with the more savoury aromas of almond nougat, vanilla beans and marzipan – an opulent concoction that is infused with a charry smokiness. The savouriness carries through onto a wonderfully dry, but rich and powerful palate that has great texture and concentration.
The brain-child of Kevin Judd, Greywacke takes New Zealand Sauvignon to the next level.
