Cairnbrae Marlborough Chardonnay

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (1999 Vintage) says
The 1998 vintage of Murray and Daphne Brown's wine, grown in the Jacksons Road area, is the best yet. Fermented and matured in American oak casks, with full malolactic fermentation, it's a deliriously soft, generous and concentrated wine with toffee-like 'malo' aromas, sweet, ripe citrusy fruit characters, loads of flavour and a creamy finish. The 1999 also American oak-aged, is full and creamy-smooth, with rich citrus/melon flavours, buttery, toasty oak and a rounded, moderately complex finish. It's a forward style, offering lots of drink-young pleasure.

Michael Cooper (1998 Vintage) says
Past vintages of Murray and Daphne Brown's wine, grown in the Jacksons Road area, were consistently enjoyable although not distinguished - crisp and vibrantly fruity, with good body and gentle use of oak. The 1998 vintage is a big step up. Fermented and matured for five months in American oak casks, with full malolactic fermentation, it's a forward style with impressive character and strength. It's a soft, generous, concentrated wine with toffee-like "malo" aromas, sweet, ripe citrusy fruit characters and savoury, nutty complexities. Loads of flavour and a creamy finish add up to a delicious mouthful.
