• hawk_wakawakaDelicious sparkling Chardonnay from Alan McCorkindale in Canterbury. Both the 2003 and 2009 showed well with the 2009 a bit leaner, fresher and crisper to the 2003s comparatively fleshier weight on the palate and tertiary flavors brought in partially from time in bottle of course. Both carry an earthiness with a bit of biscuit alongside their orchard fruit character. The 2009 was more biscuit focused right now while the 2003 had hints of dried pears. #nzwine @nzwinegrowers @nzwineusa
