Giesen 2015 Single Vineyard Clayvin The Fuder Series Chardonnay (Marlborough)

The Chardonnay is normally one of the strongest offerings from Giesen's range of wines from the organically farmed single vineyard Clayvin, but this vintage is currently in an awkward stage. Closed and fairly reductive, it needs plenty of time in decanter to reveal its tropical and lime fruit, vanilla, and toasty salted-nut characters. The palate is highly textured with a rush of cheek-biting acidity. This rich full-figured Chardonnay is meant for the long haul. Drink 2020–2029. Christina Pickard
