Akarua Central Otago Chardonnay 2008

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 09-Jun-2011
At 13.5% alc. and aged 11 months in 30% new French oak, this has a bright lemony straw-yellow colour and a savoury, complex nose of stonefruits and minerals with flinty elements and nutty oak. On palate full with mealy, nutty flavours showing body and weight, laced with acidity and some oak spice. The wine carries some complexing sulphides and is beginning to integrate.  Jun 2011
