What’s in the glass tonight August 31st – Chardonnay

Saint Clair Chardonnay 2014

Saint Clair Family Estate Chardonnay Marlborough 2014 – $

I normally walk right past this supermarket value wine. But, this time the bottle bore a Silver Medal from the 2016 Royal Easter Show. Which means it’s got to be over 85 points. So into the basket it went…

Pale straw. 13% alc. From fruit out of the Wairau Valley.

Sweet ripe fruit, lemon, clean and clear, simple on the nose.

Sweet entry, good body and ripeness on the mid-palate. A refreshing acid finish. All in moderation, and over, moreish. Finely textured. Quite yummy.

86 points
