Lighthouse The Beacon' Waipara Chardonnay 2017
- Lighthouse is the project of Canterbury-based winemaker Ben Austin. Quite an interesting number, this, with its fragrant notes of herbs, oak and spice.
- It is showing a bit of evolution, so if you like a somewhat developed chardonnay, check it out.
- Despite its age, though, it retains a lovely mineral note and a great length. “Great nose of quince and toast,” wrote Farrera, adding “brandy and crème brûlée”.
- Screwcap. 12.6% alcohol content.
