The Spinyback Chardonnay 2009 is produced by Waimea Estate. With an attractive golden hue, this expressive wine has citrus, white peach and creamy aromas, complemented by subtle oak notes. The palate has vibrant acidity, with ripe tropical fruit and lemon flavours, with a soft creamy finish due to its extended time on lees. A steal at just $10 per bottle.
Spinyback back is the second label of Waimea Estates and is renowned for producing excellent value for money wines. This wine was awarded 4 stars by Sam Kim of Wine Orbit who said "A nicely maturing Chardonnay with complex citrus, stone fruit, vanilla and roasted nut characters on the nose. The palate is lively and juicy with good weight and a refreshing finish. A lovely medium-bodied Chardonnay. At its best now to 2013. "
It also picked up Bronze at the New Zealand International Wine Show 2010. It is excellent partnered with creamy soft white cheeses, cold meats, roast chicken or salmon-based dishes.
