Oh man, you just gotta love Marlborough. Coconut husk, crisp apple, melon and green pear aromas. The palate offers a blast of sunny fruit riding high on a wave of vibrant acidity. The finish is ripe and tangy with grapefruit and honeydew melon. Enjoy this with scallops pan-seared in butter. (VINTAGES panel, March 2013)

Here's a clean, fresh, fruity, soft and appealing chardonnay, driven by tropical fruit salad flavours and light oak...

This is a quite rich, fleshy and creamy style of chardonnay with fairly deep yellow colour and ripe peachy flavours...
