What’s in the glass tonight April 9th


Brunton Road Gisborne Chardonnay 2009 – $ $ $

In the summer (ha!) Of 2012, LG and I holidayed up in Gisborne. We had a fun, if damp, time. If you ever visit the G, make sure you check out the Rere Falls rockslide. Bring a boogie board and wear rock shoes…sliding down the smooth plate of rock is a blast!

One day I visited the Gisborne Wine Centre for a tasting and picked this bottle out amongst others for the Pool Room.

It’s a bright yellow Chard. 13%. A mature,  honeyed nose. Nutty, buttery, big  and fleshy in the mouth. Strongly oaked. Showing attractive age qualities. Typical Gizzy I reckon.  I like a muscley chardonnay. A warming white for when the first chill winds of autumn bite!  4

And for when we have finishing staining and clearcoating our wooden floors…!
