Ataahua Chardonnay 2022, Waipara

A full-bodied richer style of Chardonnay with a bouquet of peaches and nut, toasty barrel and a creamy-cheese, vanilla custard quality. There’s spice and toasted wood as well as a burnt butter quality. The weight and creaminess on the palate is contrasted by the acid line and newer barrel flavours suggesting vanilla and nut. Balanced, well made and ready, a wine that should continue to develop it trajectory for nutty, rich and creamy textures with best drinking from 2024 through 2030.
