Cable Bay ‘White Label’ Waiheke Chardonnay 2008

05-Jul-2012
The wines from Cable Bay on Waiheke Island are made by Neill Culley and Mel McIntyre with more than a nod to the modern styles of Europe. The Chardonnay wines have an elegance with traditional nutty expressions as well as the complexing contemporary reductive characters. This is evident in the ‘premium' label, which also possesses extra richness and oaking, as well as the lesser-seen ‘White Label' wine, normally reserved for export markets. Recently, I reviewed the 2009 release, sold through Advintage (click here to see), and now I review the 2008 wine. www.cablebay.co.nz
