2017 Riflemans Chardonnay

The wine has a complex nose showing hazelnut and walnut, ripe citrus zest and citrus blossom with hints of lemon brioche. The palate is fabulously full and rich with a supple vein of lively acidity lending support to creamy oak tannins. Elegance and power!

One of my favourite NZ Chards year after year, the 2017 Riflemans Chardonnay continues that successful tradition, marrying ripe pineapple and grilled peach notes with scents of toasted grain. It’s unabashedly oaked but has the powerful fruit to handle it, resulting in waves of lush flavor. Medium to full-bodied, generous yet structured, with a long, long finish, it should drink well for another 5-6 years, maybe more.
