What’s in the glass March 13th

Goldridge Gisborne Chardonnay 2010 2

Goldridge Estate Gisborne Chardonnay 2010 – $

I served this to some guests last night, but tried this myself today.

Deep gold colour, which suggests oxidation. I can smell peaches and phenolics. The tasting notes say there is some pineapple, but I can’t see it; might have been there in a younger bottle. The wine is a bit thin and backward of fruit in the mouth, but has some nutty/toasty/balanced oaky character.

It could be better warmer, both literally and figuratively, but I’ll never get to know for sure cos my slowly warming glass was knocked over in a pillow fight with LG…
