Wine tasting notes

COLOUR: Bright straw AROMA: Displays concentrated aromas of ripe nectarine and white peach with undertones of citrus peel. Lifted notes of dried herbs and wood spice compliment nuanced aromas of roasted hazelnut, wet stone and honeycomb. PALATE: The pallet is concentrated and beautifully textured with a flowing mouth-feel. The fruit weight and oak balance layer with luscious acidity to provide a superb fresh, linear and creamy structure.

Expert reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2006) - 92 pts

Wine Advocate Issue #184 Sep 2009 - Reviewer Neal Martin - The handpicked 2006 Cob Cottage Chardonnay has a well-defined but rather conservative nose with just a hint of French oak. The palate is clean and fresh on the entry, builds beautifully in the mouth towards a crisp nectarine and vanilla tinged finish with superb persistency. This is a great New Zealand Chardonnay that should drink over the next 2-5 years. Auntsfield is one of New Zealand stalwart producers that can trace its roots back the 19th century and they presently farm vineyards in the Wairau Valley. They have an interesting portfolio full of character and occasionally, great quality.


Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2010) - 92 pts

eRobertParker.com #203. Oct 2012. Reviewer : Lisa Perrotti-Brown. The 2010 Cob Cottage Chardonnay offers pronounced notes of grapefruit, passion fruit and white peach with touches of cedar, mandarin peel and cashews. Medium bodied with a lovely silken texture, it give a great intensity of tropical and stone fruit flavors in the mouth with a balanced suggestion of oak and crisp acid, finishing long and tangy. Approachable now, it should cellar to 2016+.


Bob Campbell MW (2006) - 92 pts

Bob Campbell MW, 92pts - "Assertive wine with strong citrus, stone fruit, mineral and spicy oak flavours together with some bran biscuit and sizzled butter characters. Full-flavoured wine with character and appeal."
