Foxes Island Marlborough Chardonnay

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2006 Vintage) says
This deeply flavoured, finely balanced Chardonnay is consistently impressive. The 2006 vintage fully fermented in French oak barriques, has concentrated, grapefruit-like flavours and a subtle seasoning of oak. Tight and complex, with a minerally thread, it shows good cellaring potential.

Michael Cooper (2004 Vintage) says
This richly flavoured, skilfully balanced Chardonnay is produced by John Belsham, a senior wine judge and vastly experienced winemaker. The 2004 vintage was fully fermented in French oak barriques (40 per cent new). Bright, light yellow/green, it is richly fragrant, mouthfilling and very harmonious, with a creamy-smooth texture and peachy, citrusy flavours, ripe, delicate and deep.

Michael Cooper (2001 Vintage) says
This richly flavoured, skilfully balanced Chardonnay is produced by John Belsham, a senior wine judge and vastly experienced winemaker. The 2001 vintage was hand-picked and fully fermented in French oak barriques (40 per cent new). Still developing, it has fragrant, toasty oak and ripe-fruit aromas. Full-flavoured, with crisp acidity, vibrant peach and melon charterers, French oak complexity and a tight, rich finish, it's a very elegant and harmonious wine that should richly reward cellaring.

Michael Cooper (2000 Vintage) says
This richly flavoured, skilfully balanced Chardonnay is produced by John Belsham, a senior wine judge and vastly experienced winemaker. The outstanding 2000 vintage was hand-picked and fully fermented in French oak barriques (50 per cent new). Weighty, harmonious and complex, with deep grapefruit-like flavours, buttery, mealy, nutty and long, it's a highly refined wine with a lasting finish. The best wine yet under this label, it offers top drinking from now onwards.
