Alana Estate Chardonnay 2015 Martinborough Bright, light golden-yellow colour, paler on the edge. This has an elegantly proportioned nose with bright and aromatic white and yellow stone-fruits with finely integrated notes of nutty oak and creamy barrel-ferment, and nuances of flinty lees. The aromatics are fresh and lively. This is a medium-bodied, sweet-fruited Chardonnay with stone-fruit and tropical fruit flavours, balanced by creamy and nutty oak on a smooth palate. The wine carries to an elegant finish.
