2012 Charteris The Astral Vineyard Chardonnay

Here’s a Chardonnay of flavour and finesse!! It is pale straw in the glass and brings scents of lime and macadamia nuts to the nose. Elegant white nectarine flavour comes through on the front of the palate and grapefruit, mineral and nashi per fruit characters integrate with almondy oak on the middle palate. Steely acid refreshes at the finish.

Drink with: Myrtle-crusted salmon fillets with lemon-buttered papardelle.
Ageing: Six Years
Rating: 4.5 Stars
