I really like this one.
Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Love this style of Chardonnay! From South Island, Nelson, New Zealand, this certified sustainable vineyard makes this mouthwatering Chard with a fragrant nose of ripe guava, pineapple, buttered toast and slight citrus. The palate blossoms with tropical fruit, buttered toast and lemon. Full-bodied with great acidity, good structure and a lingering lemony finish.
Tasted April 2016
The family-owned Waimea winery is nestled in the heart of Nelson with 140 hectares of vineyards that are certified sustainable. Well-drained soils and the highest number of sunshine hours in the country ripen the grapes to great complexity. - Community Wine Review

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
