Valli Waitaki Vineyard Chardonnay
Valli Waitaki Vineyard Chardonnay 2017
“Aromas of lemon zest, stone fruit cobbler, flint, and a hint of nutmeg. The palate is beautifully balanced with rich texture that comes from lees stirring and great length coming from the wonderful limestone-centric soils of the Waitaki. It is concentrated and finely detailed; full of character with youthful vibrancy. Chardonnay in the Waitaki is rare but worth seeking out. Made in minuscule quantities, this wine is a treasure to enjoy now but will continue to delight for years to come.”
