Discovery Platinum Selection Case, New Zealand 

New Zealand has many exciting wine styles, but, for many UK consumers, Chardonnay has been almost forgotten. What a mistake!

Some of the best Chardonnay outside of Burgundy is now made here in NZ.

The Six-Bottle “Discovery Platinum” Selection Case contains a specially selected range that is a must try for anyone who enjoys rich, but subtle white wines.

1/ Cloudy Bay Chardonnay, Marlborough & Central Otago, New Zealand, 2018

Barrel fermented and aged in French oak. The nose is fresh, beguiling, with notes of candied citrus, stone fruit, orchard blossom and subtle hints of spice. The palate is rounded, with gentle citrus and white peach, enfolded in layers of creme patissiere and hazelnut.

2/ Greywacke Chardonnay, Marlborough, New Zealand, 2016

Struck flint and hints of sweet corn and toasted grain accent white peaches and ripe pineapple on the nose. It’s medium to full-bodied, but comes across as fresh and lively, with a crisp, mouth-watering finish. Rated 92/100 by Wine Advocate

3/ Two Rivers “Clos de Pierres” Chardonnay, Marlborough, New Zealand, 2018

Weighty, mouth-filling wine with bread, peach, struck flint and nutty lees flavours. Slightly phenolic, in a good way. An interesting wine with character. Rated 93/100 & 4.5* by Bob Campbell

4/ Greenhough “Road Block” Chardonnay, Nelson, New Zealand, 2018

Tangy, Chablis-like chardonnay with oyster-shell, green apple, lime juice and subtle spicy oak flavours. A fruit-forward wine, with a delicious thread of mouth tingling acidity. Appealing purity and a silken texture. Rated 92/100 by Bob Campbell MW

5/ Ata Rangi “Craighall” Chardonnay, Martinborough, North Island, New Zealand, 2018

This wine never used to be available outside of NZ. You know the well-used phrase: “Keeping the best for themselves!” This single vineyard wine has serious concentration and drive with tight, bright acidity. A clean, precise nose of ripe pear and jasmine flowers with savoury aromas of cashew and almond leading onto the elegant palate. A superb example.

6/ Radburnd Cellars Chardonnay, Hawke’s Bay, North Island, New Zealand, 2018

An elegant Chardonnay which focuses on the beautiful structure so evident in this grape variety. Pristine fruit and balanced acidity are the backbone, enhanced with seamless texture and mouthfeel. Citrus notes, particularly grapefruit pith abound, gracefully supported by sweet French oak. Beautifully rich, but so drinkable. Rated 17/20 by Jancis Robinson MW
