TK Chardonnay 2011

Chardonnay Day?

Te Kairanga Martinborough Estate Chardonnay 2011 – $

I like chardonnays from Martinborough (actually I like most things out of Martinborough!).

I reckon they are a touch softer and rounder than their cousins from the Bay a few hours drive north.

This one conforms to type: pale straw; on the nose there are pears and citrus; in the mouth it’s smooth and mellow and peachy. Not a huge lot going on, and backing off from a big malo taste. It supported the spicy chicken L and I ate ok.

3. There. Fin.
