What’s in the glass tonight September 7th – Chardonnay


Ka Tahi Chardonnay Hawkes Bay 2015 – $

Ka Tahi means the one in Te Reo. It looks to be a negociant wine.  Pale gold colour. 13%.

Fragrant peach, nectarines, manuka honey. It smells very developed for a 2015! Almost Burgundian in character.

Flavours in the mouth of apples, citrus, mandarin, nectarine, butterscotch. There is a zesty sharp attack with this wine, crunchy mouthfeel, medium length. Nice weight and ripeness to this value quaffer.
