Forrest Estate Chardonnay 2004


This 2004 vintage chardonnay from Forrest Estate in Marlborough has some age on it.  It has pungent aromatics of musk, florals, dried tropical fruit and even gooseberry.  (I tasted the wine blind, so this latter character was not an leap of logic based on the taste profile of the region's more ubiquitious grape variety.)  On the palate, there is medium acidity, coupled with some breadth and length of yellow peach flavours.  Overall, there's some interest here.  Acceptable to Good
