Longbush Wines 'Bird Series' 2017 Chardonnay
Full bodied, round and powerful, the wood pigeon, Kereru, shares many similar characteristics with this Chardonnay.
"Classic bouquet of Chardonnay with peaches and cream leading the aroma package with some apple and citrus then whispers of lees. Dry on the palate with perhaps a whisper of sweetness; ripe fruit flavours, warm and balanced with plenty of acidity. Little to no oak suggestions, mild, creamy, balanced. Drink now and through 2021". Cameron Douglas MS
