Fiddler’s Green Waipara Chardonnay 2002 (review)

80 points

Waipara, South Island, New Zealand. 13.5%

Shiny brassy gold. Oatmeal and corn aromas and flavours. It has acidity and the alcohol isn’t blowsy but this wine is over oaked and oxidised. Fragile now. Drink now or sooner ! This really is poor winemaking, though the wine is not without interest.
