Ascension “The Ascent” Reserve Chardonnay 2005

This is a big wine from Matakana (an hour north of Auckland) and one that we should really have consumed about 12-18 months ago and not in June 2009.  We have previously really enjoyed this wine, however it has now turned to being a touch acidic and the alcohol and French oak is now starting to overpower the fruit.  It is still quite drinkable but if you still have any of this vintage I suggest, unless you have great cellaring conditions, you drink it now.
