Te Mata Elston Chardonnay 2008

86 points

Hawkes Bay, NZ. 13.5%

Perfect limpid gold green colour. Well judged french oak on the nose. A well crafted cool climate Chardonnay. With minerally tingly acidity.

But it lacks the depth of ripeness to make it great. There is a touch of green and a lack of flavour omph.
