Pegasus Bay Waipara Valley Chardonnay 2017

Pegasus Bay Waipara Valley Chardonnay 2017 $43

Wow.  Wow and triple wow.  If the immense punch of grilled grapefruit, buttered crumpet, and hints of smoked bacon and popcorn doesn’t send you sideways, the powerful, weighty, woof-inducing complexity on the palate definitely will.  Sourced from old vines and matured on its yeast lees in 30% new French oak puncheons, it’s a beautiful, golden, richly textured wine that has beautifully smoky layers on the finish.  Cellaring potential?  I’d love to taste this again in five years.  Gorgeous stuff.
