Corbans Cottage Block Gisborne Chardonnay

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (1995 Vintage) says
Light to medium yellow-green; a striking, challenging bouquet with very strong French hot solids characters. The palate is less unconventional and challenging, with considerable length and complexity, although there is an echo of the hot solids characters on the finish. Tailor-made for those who love traditional French Burgundies.

Michael Cooper (1995 Vintage) says
This label shot to fame when the 1994 vintage swept all before it at the 1995 Air New Zealand Wine Awards. Grown in the Ormond Valley, it is whole-bunch pressed and fermented with indigenous yeasts in French oak barriques, with a much higher percentage of new oak than is used for the second-tier Private Bin Gisborne Chardonnay (80 per cent, compared to about 40 percent). Nutty, complex and very long, the 1994 is maturing superbly and the 1995 vintage is also an exciting mouthful - robust, mealy and deep, with great concentration of sweet, ripe, grapefruit/lemon flavours, quality oak and a beautifully balanced, slightly buttery finish. There have been no releases since the 1995; the grapes have gone into the Private Bin Gisborne Chardonnay (below).
