Chardonnay Opou Vineyard, Gisborne, Millton
One of our best-respected wines - strong in flavour, initially crisp with some soft notes of lemon acidity then gently nutty as it lingers on the palate. No tropical fruit salad overdose style for James Milton - rather a rich, minerally Chardonnay with impressions of hazelnut and honey and its power well restrained. Thoughtfully integrated oak balances the acidity with the residual alcohol giving hints of spice and white pepper. Highly recommended.
