Olssen's Charcoal Joe Chardonnay

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2004 Vintage) says
Named after a nineteenth-century goldminer, this wine is grown at Bannockburn in Central Otago, and fermented and matured in French oak barriques. The 2004 vintage is pale lemon, fresh and smooth, with citrus and butterscotch characters to the fore, a very creamy texture and mouthfilling body.

Michael Cooper (2002 Vintage) says
Named after a nineteenth-century goldminer, the 2002 was grown at Bannockburn in Central Otago, and fermented and matured in French oak barriques (40 per cent new}. It's a lemony, distinctly cool-climate style with some complexity, cut with fresh acidify. The youthful, lemon/green-hued 2003 vintage is a full-bodied wine (14. 5 per cent alcohol), with creamy, buttery aromas and flavours, coupled with citrusy, appley fruit characters, and lively acids on the finish.
