Cable Bay Waiheke Island Chardonnay 2019

This wine has vibrancy and complexity, with lemon blossom, grapefruit, peach and earthy clay pot aromas complementing a fresh and focused palate. Fine phenolic texture and minerally acidity add depth and length respectively.  The salinity from the ocean, baking spice flavours from ageing in oak, together with juicy tree fruit notes from the grapes, round out what is truly a charming wine from a fantastic vintage.
