Palliser Estate White Label Chardonnay 2022


Martinborough might be best known for its superb Pinots, but there are many excellent Chardonnays found here as well. Recent years have also seen some fine vintages. This wine is still very young but there is serious promise. Deep yellow/grapefruit skin hue, this is an elegant style of Kiwi Chardonnay. Focused and linear, the aromas give notes of lemon, hints of nuts and peaches. The palate has a lovely supple texture and is seamless with fine acidity running the full journey. Very good length here, enjoy this wine over the next four to six years. If you were not convinced by Martinborough Chardy, give this a chance and you might find your views changed. Lovely wine.
