Aitken’s Folly Chardonnay 2021, Central Otago

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 30-Sep-2022
Bright, pale yellow, even colour throughout. The nose is full, greeted with flint, roasted almond, toasty elements, underlying citrus, stonefruit and green herb. Medium-bodied, aromas of lemon, grapefruit peels and nectarine, unfolding roasted almond, barrel flint and cream. The mouthfeel is creamy with toasty barrel elements, and lively acidity supports and persists to a toasty finish. This Chardonnay shows a citrus core enriched by toasty oak details and a creamy palate. Match with roasted chicken and pork over the next 3-5 years. 18/20 pts (90 pts) Sep 2022 RRP $35
