Stoneleigh Latitude Chardonnay Marlborough 2014 – $$
This is the reserve Chardonnay from the vineyards that line Rapaura Road in Marlbrough. I really liked the 2013, and expect the ’14 to be just as enjoyable…
Pale gold. 13.5% alc.
Reductive, oaky nose. Vanilla and spice. Big, warm and attractive.
Creamy and rich in the mouth. Crunchy mouth feel. Bold stonefruit flavours with brusque acid underpinnings. Long.
