Wither Hills Chardonnay 2008

This wine impressed me at a New Zealand Wine Society tasting a couple of years ago (not sure what the vintage was though). It stood out among a sea of Sauvignon Blanc, and I finally got around to buying some.

It's a fairly tropical expression of Chardonnay. What I mean by that is its main flavour signature is one of pineapples instead of the buttery oaky type that I normally prefer. Not normally my thing, but this has an intensity and richness about it that I really like.
