Not to my taste
I saw this recommended on an old "Saturday Kitchen" program on TV. Really wish I'd not bothered. I found it way too oaky for me and even my other half who likes his wine dry did not like it either. I actually threw the remainder away (never before known !).
Was looking forward to this having wine as we have
Was looking forward to this having wine as we have had good Gisborne Chardonnay from several other produces over the years. However this wine was a poor example of the New Zealand style for this grape. Although you could just about tell it was Chardonnay, it was light bodied bordering on thin! Though the oak wasn't heavy handed, because the fruit was so light and delicate, it kind of dominated the palate. Will not buy again!
Did not taste like an oaked Chardonnay to me, very sharp, not smooth, no hints of a oaked wine no vanilla etc, no legs.
Excellent taste, delicious with lemon chicken recipe
