Eastern Peake Intrinsic Chardonnay 2015

Winemaker Owen Lift sent this with a 2002, and 2003 vintage Chardonnay, which is a lovely thing to do. And for the record, the 2002 (14%), is still in the slot with a caramel richness mingling with rockpool scents, but shot through with lively and firm acidity and a tight finish, and the 2003 (14.5%) has a similar richness and weight, but really pushes it one louder, yet keeps itself trim and tidy. A fine pair, no doubt.
