Astrolabe Marlborough Chardonnay 2017
Astrolabe Marlborough Chardonnay has texture and a tight structure. Medium straw-gold colour. Greets you with ripe melon and dried stone fruit aromas with notes of butter and vanilla. The dry, elegant palate has a bright acidity, lots of texture and a tight structure. Apple and stone fruit flavours with a vanilla creaminess, a hint of lemon citrus and generous nuances of nutty oak. Closes in a long salty mineral finish.
Ageing potential: will continue to develop rewarding flavour and bottle complexity with ageing.
