What’s in the glass tonight October 27th


John Forrest Chardonnay 2011

John Forrest Collection Chardonnay Waitaki Valley 2011

A North Otago Waitaki Chardonnay – my first.

12.5% alc. Pale gold colour.

White peach, vanilla, mealy notes. Suppressed fruit. Distinctive bouquet.

In the glass this is expressing minerality over fruit. Pip fruit flavours. Somewhat flat and soft. A European style of Chardonnay. Some tertiary flavours developing. A dry finish.
