Akarua Chardonnay 2022, Central Otago

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 30-Jun-2023
Bright, even, pale yellow. The nose is softly full and elegant, with aromas of stonefruit, citrus and peels, warm nuts and fine spice. Medium-full bodied, aromas of peach and nectarine interweaved with grapefruit, zesty spice, warm hazelnut and spices. The mouthfeel is creamy, enriched by spice and nutty elements, and buttery hints lend a long, toasty finish. This Chardonnay is generous and elegant with lush fruit, nutty, spice details and a buttery, creamy palate. Match with roasted chicken and grouper over the next 3-5 years. Barrel-fermented, partial MLF and weekly lees stirred. 14% alc. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) June 2023 RRP $30
