Blank Canvas Reed Chardonnay 2022 (75cl)
The Reed Chardonnay comes from the Waihopai Valley and was fermented in barrel with native yeasts and aged for a further 11 months in barrel before bottling. A classic reductive nose with aromas of flint, intense lemon, and brioche. Very concentrated with mouth-watering citrus, hints of spices, and a subtle smoky note into the long finish.
95 Points, #1 Marlborough Chardonnay
"Weighty, mouth-filling chardonnay with grapefruit, saline/oyster shell, lime zest, nutty yeast lees and a suggestion of sizzled butter. Great without the complication of food but even better with my hot-smoked salmon. 27/9/2023" Bob Campbell MW
