Greenhough Road Block Chardonnay, Nelson, South Island, New Zealand, 2018
100% Hand picked organic Chardonnay with 10 months in French oak
The 2018 vintage has provided ripe fruit flavours, balance and immediate drinkability. The nose is deep rather than overt, with aromas of tangelo, apricot and subtle savoury bakery notes. There is a depth of mellow fruit on the front palate with excellent balance and integration of elements. Typically, citrus fruits are in evidence complimented by melon and yellow-fleshed fruits. A little new oak spice and creamy, barrel-ferment-derived richness compliments the ripe fruit flavours and adds a hint of phenolic/textural interest.
“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. Good value at the price.” 92/100 Bob Campbell’s Real Review, February 2020
“The youthful, lemon-scented 2017 vintage, grown at Hope, in the Morison and Greenhough vineyards, was barrel-fermented (16 percent new) and French oak-aged for 10 months. Bright, light lemon/green, it is fresh and citrusy, with peachy, biscuity notes adding complexity, a slightly minerally thread and obvious potential; best drinking 2020+” 4 Stars Michael Cooper
