Kahurangi Estate Mt Arthur Chardonnay

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2003 Vintage) says
Named after the highest peak in Kahurangi National Park, the robust 2003 vintage is promoted as a 'big wine, like the mountain itself. Grown in the Upper Moutere hills and fermented and matured for seven months in oak barrels (new and two-year-old), it's a powerful wine (14.5 per cent alcohol) with toasty oak aromas and lush, concentrated stone-fruit flavours. An upfront style, fleshy and creamy, it's quite forward and ready for drinking.

Michael Cooper (2002 Vintage) says
The 2002 vintage was grown in the Upper Moutere hills of Nelson and barrel-fermented. It's a weighty wine with ripe, concentrated grapefruit and peach flavours, toast and butterscotch complexities and a well-rounded finish. Drink 2004-05.
