Wooing Tree Chardonnay
Wooing Tree Chardonnay is made from grapes grown in a single vineyard. Ripe, handpicked grapes and barrel fermentation have given a wonderfully balanced wine with rich texture and fruit. The wine shows delightful aromas of peaches and nectarines with citrus and butterscotch on the palate. Medium to full-bodied, there is some oak apparent, with an oiliness to the texture and a long, warm finish. A perfect example of New Zealand Chardonnay done right.
