DRINK OF THE WEEK
15th September 2014
Winemakers Selection Marlborough Chardonnay
Drinker Rating 89
At a recent tasting I was giving two people told me that they NEVER drank chardonnay. 'Horrid, horrid stuff, eurgh, I think I'm going to be sick etc.' or words to that effect. My response is, saying you don't like chardonnay is a bit like saying you don't like bread. It is so versatile and comes in all forms there is bound to be one in there for you. Austere and stony, green apple, tropical, oaky.
This is a proper new world chardonnay, a good dollop of oak, but very well judged and not over powering, a good white pepper and fruity mouthful.
Go on, try an old friend who's changedfor nthe better.
