Waimea Estates Bolitho Reserve Nelson Chardonnay

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2003 Vintage) says
Named after proprietors Trevor and Robyn Bolitho, the 2003 vintage was grown at Kina, in Tasman Bay, on Moutere clay soils, harvested at over 25 brix, fermented with indigenous yeasts and lees-aged for 11 months in French oak barriques (new and seasoned). Youthful in colour, with a rich, minerally, complex bouquet, it is very weighty and harmonious, with substantial body (15 per cent alcohol) and a slightly earthy streak in its deep, peachy, nutty flavours.

Michael Cooper (2001 Vintage) says
Named after proprietors, Trevor and Robyrn Bolitho, the 2001 vintage is a pale gold wine with a toasty, oaky bouquet. Fermented with indigenous yeasts and lees-aged for a year in French oak barriques, with 80 per cent malolactic fermentation, it's a fleshy and generous wine with tropical-fruit and strong toasty oak flavours.
