Aitken’s Folly Gordon Chardonnay 2017, Central Otago

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 30-Sep-2022
Bright, moderately deep yellow with a light green hue, even colour throughout. The nose is full, with aromas of toasted almond, spice, flint interweave vegetal notes and a citrus underlay. Full-bodied, aromas of brown butter, roasted almond entwined with spice mix, vanilla, apricot, lemon peels and toast. The wine is developed, showing rich, toasty complexities. The creamy palate supported by integrated acid tension drives a long, toasty finish. This rich-flavoured Chardonnay shows concentration with layers of toasty developments and complexity with a softened taut acid line. Match with hazelnut-crusted grouper and rotisserie chicken over the next 3 years. 18+/20 pts (91 pts) Sep 2022 RRP $40
