Gladstone Wairarapa Chardonnay

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2002 Vintage) says
Typically a soft and creamy wine, delicious in its youth. Half tank, half barrel-fermented, the 2002 vintage has a pale straw hue, with good depth of fresh, lively peach and grapefruit flavours threaded with crisp acidity, some biscuity complexity and a seductively smooth finish.

Michael Cooper (2001 Vintage) says
Both the 1999 and 2001 vintages (there was no 2000) are deliciously soft and creamy. Half tank, half barrel-fermented, the 2001 is a softly mouthfilling wine with fresh, strong grapefruit and peach flavours and a distinct butterscotch character. Ripe and rounded, with good mouthfeel and texture, it's a highly seductive drink-young style

Michael Cooper (1999 Vintage) says
The 1998 vintage grown in the Wairarapa and half barrel-fermented (the rest was handled in tanks) is a solid wine with moderate depth of smooth, ripe, lemony, appley flavours. The 1999 is a forward and harmonious wine, satisfyingly full-bodied and rounded, with good depth of lemony, biscuity, slightly mealy flavours.

Michael Cooper (1998 Vintage) says
This small Wairarapa winery's 1994 to 1996 Chardonnays were grown in Hawke's Bay. The 1998 vintage grown in the Wairarapa and half barrel-fermented (die rest was handled in tanks) is a solid wine with moderate depth of smooth, ripe, lemony, appley flavours.
