Corofin Folium Vineyard Chardonnay is a splendid New Zealand wine with an exquisite fusion of flavours. Made from the finest Chardonnay grapes grown in the region’s rich soil, its taste reveals notable hints of honey, vanilla and almond underlain with a dash of lemon zest. Its velvety texture and tempered acidity make for a delightful mouthfeel. The wine exudes muted oak and buttery undertones, ending with a superbly long finish. This Chardonnay is indeed a delightful treat for true wine connoisseurs, perfect for pairing with a gourmet cheese board or savoury seafood dishes. True to its Marlborough roots, it exudes elegance and complexity.
Citrus combining with crushed flowers and salty sea air. Maybe Takaki’s dry-farming providing these ethereal aromatics and then amplified to taste. Tannin but with freshness
