pop up zombie by ssamanthaa

Church Road Hawkes Bay Chardonnay 2012 – $

I blogged about this wine back in Jan…and here it pops up again, en speciale,  like a zombie back from the dead. I wrote at the time, “This is mealy and nutty on the nose, pale yellow, and with some weight and mineral/white pepper behind the ripe white stonefruit flavours”

And like any good zombie it’s aged a bit in the interim. The flavour notes run true, it’s still dependable, and weighty, but starting to smell and sag a little. Drink it all up, folks, and wait for the 2013’s: they will be Pg3 stunnas. 3.5
