Matariki 1997 Chardonnay (Hawke's Bay & Waipara)

Here's a fruity Chard that smacks of terroir. Not a lot of oak, but the perfectly ripe grapes suggest green apple, peach, smoke and Asian spices. Hard to find a tastier Chard anywhere. Such ripeness, and a stony, mineral note. High acidity makes it refreshing. Worth a search.
