From the Cellar: Huntaway Reserve Gisborne Chardonnay 2011 – $$
This has improved after a night open, and missing a glass. Yellow gold. 13.5%. It came with a dose of recommendations when I bought this bottle last year, but when I tried it at the time I didn’t think it had the legs to sleep downstairs for too long.
Warm mature nose of stonefruit.
On the palate a ripe fat style. Toasty. Secondary characters pressing through, but not too strong. Citrus finish, quite long, with oak heat on the back palate. 3+
