Tietjen Witters TW Reserve Chardonnay Gisborne 2013 – $$
Off the Ormond Road. Pale gold colour. 13.5% alc.
Dense and layered and very aromatic, with big, buttery and oaky characters in the bouquet. Mango and apricot fruit.
It showed some development in the mouth. Rich mouthfeel with oak and full malo. Flavours of butterscotch, lemon citrus, ginger and honey. A strong spicy oak finish. An appealing and interesting Chardonnay.
