Hans Herzog Marlborough Chardonnay

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2009 Vintage) says
At its best, this is a notably powerful wine with layers of peach, butterscotch, grapefruit and nut flavours and a long, rounded finish. The 2009 vintage was hand-picked, fermented with indigenous yeasts in French oak puncheons and given a full, softening malolactic fermentation. Pale straw, with a fragrant, mealy, biscuity bouquet, it is full-bodied and well-rounded, with rich, ripe stone-fruit flavours, hints of apricot and butterscotch, and good complexity.

Michael Cooper (2008 Vintage) says
At its best, this is a notably powerful wine with layers of peach, butterscotch, grapefruit and nut flavours and a long, rounded finish. The 2008 vintage was hand-picked at 24 brix, fermented with indigenous yeasts in 500-litre French oak puncheons and given a full, softening malolactic fermentation. Oak-aged for a year, it is weighty, rich and sweet-fruited, with concentrated, citrusy flavours, a subtle oak influence, good texture and a rounded finish. It should be at its best mid-2010 onwards.
