Baby Doll Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay 2016

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 09-Sep-2017
Bright, pale golden-yellow colour, lighter on the edge. This has a slender, but taut and concentrated nose with moderate intensity, showing citrus and yellow stonefruits, along with subtle hints of nuts, spicy and toasty oak and some lemon-curd MLF elements. The aromatics are fresh and bright. Medium-full bodied, this has an elegantly packed palate with flavours of citrus and white stonefruits along with nutty and spicy oak and some lemon-curd MLF detail. The palate has good flavour balance and flows with good underlying acid energy leading to a light, lingering finish. This is an elegant Chardonnay with citrus and stonefruit flavours with some oak notes on a fine-textured palate. Match with seafood, pork and poultry over the next 3 years. Chardonnay fruit from Korokipo, Crownthorpe, Bridge Pa, Clive and Mangatahi, fermented in a range of vessels to 13.5% alc., the wine aged on lees with batonnage and oak contact. 17.0/20 Sep 2017 RRP $17.95
