Pepper Tree Limited Release Chardonnay 2012
The fruit comes from the Mt View vineyard in the Hunter Valley, hand picked and gently pressed.
Lightly oaked, I really liked the soft stone fruit characters. Nectarine characters jump out on a well weighted palate. Flavours punch through nicely to a long finish which lingers much longer that I expected.
The wine will develop over the next few years with bottle age, but with the wonderful flavours and freshness evident, why wait?
Good buying too at $22. Load up!
