Akaroa Winery Banks Peninsula Canterbury Chardonnay 2016

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 03-Sep-2017
Bright, even, light straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, lighter edged. The nose is softly voluminous with even and accessible aromas of white stonefruits melded with delicate notes of citrus fruits along with a fresh, steely, mineral edge, and suggestions of nutty oak. Medium-full bodied, the palate has a light, rounded and concentrated heart of stonefruits and citrus fruits. The palate possesses a little alcohol drive with crisp acidity providing good linearity. The mouthfeel is zesty and flows along a fine phenolic textured thread, leading to a light, clear, subtle finish of stonefuits and nuts. This is a light stonefruit and citrus-fruit focussed Chardonnay with some nutty notes and some drive and linearity, on a zesty palate. Match with seafood over the next 2-3 years. Fruit fermented in barrel to 13.3% alc., the wine aged 6 months in seasoned oak, undergoing 100% MLF. 16.5-/20 Sep 2017 RRP $30.00
