Okahu Estate Clifton Reserve Chardonnay

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2002 Vintage) says
At its best lush and high-flavoured, this wine is a regional blend, matured in American (mostly) and French oak barriques. The 2002, grown in Northland and Hawke's Bay, is citrusy and crisp, but not highly concentrated, and when tasted blind in 2004 was overshadowed by its cheaper stablemate (above). This is the last vintage of this label.

Michael Cooper (2000 Vintage) says
The lush, high-flavoured 2000 vintage is a blend of Northland (Okahu), Auckland (Te Hana) and Hawke's Bay grapes. Fermented and lees-aged for 15 months in new and one-year-old American (predominantly) and French oak barriques, with 60 per cent malolactic fermentation, it is highly fragrant, smooth and concentrated, with rich, ripe, peachy fruit characters seasoned with sweet oak. It's a bold, softly seductive wine, offering delicious drinking from now onwards.
