Peregrine Chardonnay 2007, Central Otago

With light oak, alcohol and lychee to the nose this wine has a beautiful golden hue. To taste there is an explosion of citrus, a touch of french oak and a bit of acid. It does feel like it’s lacking a bit in oak and the more I drink the level of acid builds and overall the balance doesn’t feel quite right. Maybe it would have been better to drink earlier but I suspect it still wouldn’t be quite right.
