Ata Rangi ‘Petrie’ Wairarapa Chardonnay 2013

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 21-Oct-2014
Youthfully pale, this is tight and quite slender. Shocked from recent bottling? Contemporary gunflint aromas, with stonefruits and nuts underneath. Refined and elegant, with depth. Classical elegance, tight lines and linearity with bound flinty and stonefruit flavours. Minerals and minerality, the oaking discreet and supportive. Fruit sweetness emerges, and the palate lingers and lingers. Much more richness to emerge here. Clone 15, 22 y.o. vines, indigenous yeast fermentation to 13.8% alc., 8 months in 18% new oak with 30% MLF. 18.5-/20 Oct 2014 RRP $28.95
