This wine has a concentrated nose of white peach, citrus fruit and toffee aromas, combined with flint and mineral elements, nuts and a soft, creamy barrel-ferment note. Medium to full bodied wine.

An elegant and very complete Chardonnay, Stanley Estate are clearly trying to get noticed. Made by ex chief winemaker at Cloudy Bay, Eveline Fraser, it has gorgeous biscuit and oak characters set amongst apple and citrus. With perfect weight, this is the balance and integration of elements we look for. Impressive for this price, and a producer to watch.

The vineyard is nestled under Mount Tapuae-O-Uenuku (Maori" "Footprint of the Rainbow"). At the top of the Southern Alps, it strongly influences the climate, with its rain shadow bestowing low rainfall and low humidity upon the Awatere Valley. Along with sunny days and cool nights this creates perfect conditions for slow steady ripening and flavour development. Awatere grapes have a distinctive fruity yet steely and herbaceous flavour quite different to those produced elsewhere in Marlborough.

Voted as 'Top Value' from Bob Campbell scoring this a huge 93/100. Described as 'Creamy and mouth filling' by Bob Campbell this is a chardonnay drinkers delight.
