Complex and balanced, the 2016 Gehricke Chardonnay is a comfortable white with an eclectic flavour profile and a nice coating palate. It opens with classic apple and pear notes, then slips into vibrant lemon meringue, lime oil, floral jasmine, tangerine and tuberose. As this Chard sits and warms, it takes on a more tropical and minty tone of pineapple, kiwi and mango. The wine then bows out with a light toast, french butter, cream soda and candied lemon rind. Bright acidity with a luxurious creaminess that extends through the finish, making it perfect for an end day treat.
