Lake Chalice 'The Raptor' Marlborough Chardonnay 2016

You are here

Tasting Notes

A full bodied Chardonnay with flavours of nectarine, brioche and hazelnut with lifted toasty notes and an underlying spicy touch. The nose is aromatic and lifted and the palate elegant and creamy with well-balanced acidity that leads to a warm lingering finish.

Enjoy now and over the next five years.

Well matched with scallops with a white wine sauce.
