What’s in the glass tonight August 4th – Chardonnay

Awatere Valley Chardonnay

Awatere River by Louis Vavasour Chardonnay Marlborough 2014 – $$$

Blond straw colour. 13.8% alc.

Smells honeyed, reductive and flinty. Very composed.

Bracing bright acid in the mouth. A lean, clean, fresh and linear Chardonnay. Some butterscotch flavours, and lots of lemon. Short. Punchy. Mouthwatering. Very stylish. Even tho some of the reduction extends to the palate, I still thought it excellent.
