"Out of 58 Chardonnays tasted, only four rated higher!"
2014 Mt. Beautiful Chardonnay | North Cantebury, New Zealand
95 Points and 5 Stars!
“This will draw attention to the lovely Chardonnays produced in New Zealand that haven’t received accolades they deserve. From certifed-sustainable vineyards, this is a rather New
World/Old World style. It has nuances of wildflowers, mineral and under-ripe fruit on the nose. These nuances continue on the palate, but then fruit flavors become lush and mouth
filling. The fnish is long and lively with racy sweet/tart acidity and a hint of lemon/grapefruit. Pair this with pork or fowl with a fruit glaze, or enjoy it as an aperitif.”
