Goldwater Roseland Marlborough Chardonnay

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2004 Vintage) says
Typically a finely scented, weighty, vibrantly fruity wine with well-ripened, tropical-fruit characters and subtle use of oak in a moderately complex but highly attractive style. The 2003 vintage is an enticingly fragrant wine with punchy, ripe-fruit, concentrated, citrusy flavours woven with fresh acidity, slightly mealy characters and considerable complexity. The 2004 was grown in two vineyards in the Wairau Valley and 'predominantly' fermented in French oak barriques (20 per cent new). Pale lemon/green, it is full-bodied, fresh and vibrant, with crisp, slightly biscuity flavours showing good depth and a distinct hint of butterscotch.

Michael Cooper (2002 Vintage) says
Typically a finely scented, weighty, vibrantly fruity wine with well-ripened, tropical-fruit characters and subtle use of oak in a moderately complex but highly attractive style. The skilfully crafted 2002 vintage was grown in two vineyards in the Wairau Valley and fermented and 'raised' for 10 months on its yeast lees in French oak barriques (20 per cent new). Full-bodied, with grapefruit and nut flavours, gentle acidity and a slightly buttery finish, it's a delicious drink-young style, with lots of character.

Michael Cooper (2001 Vintage) says
Best known for their classic Waiheke Island red, the Goldwaters also make a consistently good Chardonnay. It is typically a weighty, lush wine, scented and vibrantly fruity, with very ripe, tropical-fruit characters and subtle use of oak in a moderately complex but delicious style. Skilfully made, the 2001 vintage was harvested at over 24 brix in the central Wairau Valley and fermented and 'raised' for 10 months on its yeast lees in French oak casks (20 per cent new). Smooth and citrusy, it's a fruit-driven style with substantial body, subtle biscuity, nutty characters adding complexity, excellent depth of flavour and a dry, rounded finish.

Michael Cooper (1998 Vintage) says
Best known for their classic Waiheke red, Kim and Jeanette Goldwater also know how to make a fine Chardonnay. The 1997 is similar in style to the 1996 - a weighty, lush wine, scented and vibrantly fruity, with very ripe, tropical fruit characters and subtle use of oak in a moderately complex but delicious style. In its youth slightly less opulent than the 1996 and 1997, the 1998 was fermented and lees-aged for 10 months in French oak barriques (25 per cent new). Bright, light lemon/green, it's very mouthfilling (14 per cent alcohol), with tropical fruit flavours wrapped in toasty oak, good balance and vigour and a lingering, rounded finish. Drink 2000
