Forrest Estate Marlborough Chardonnay 2008 $22 

Gorgeous ripe grapefruit and mandarin aromas combine with solid toasty oak notes and a rich, attractive bacon-like character really rounds out the complexity of this wine.  Lovely fresh acidity and juicy length of flavour makes it a superb match with classic roast chicken or seared scallops wrapped in bacon.  One things for sure, this wine smells and tastes like it should be much more expensive.
