Matua Valley Innovator Judd Estate Hand Picked Chardonnay

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (1998 Vintage) says
This upmarket version of Mania's popular Gisborne Chardonnay reflects the input of viticulturist Simon Spence, son of proprietor Ross Spence. Based on low-cropping (2.5 tonnes per acre) vines and fully barrel-fermented, the debut 1997 vintage is a light yellow, notably rich wine with a highly fragrant and savoury bouquet and concentrated, citrusy, buttery flavours. The 1998 is another rich, elegant wine with mouthfilling body, beautifully ripe, delicate tropical/citrus fruit characters shining through and a buttery-soft finish.
