Bendigo Hills Organic Chardonnay 2022, Central Otago

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 18-Jun-2023
Bright, even, pale straw yellow. The nose displays elegant stonefruit and blossoms intermixed with vanilla, spice and nutty elements. Medium-bodied, lush fruit of peach and nectarine entwined with a hint of grapefruit, spice, vanilla and cashew. The fruit is generous and fleshy, enriched by a creamy mouthfeel, flowing smoothly and guided by a lively tension. This is a well-rounded Chardonnay with lush fruit, lively acidity and nutty elements on a creamy, amiable palate. Match with rotisserie chicken and seafood chowder over the next 3-4 years. Fruit from Trig Hill Vineyard, Bendigo. Handpicked, whole bunch pressed, fermented in French oak (50% new) with indigenous yeasts, to 13.5% alc, aged on lees for 10 months. Organic certified. Vegan friendly. 18+/20 pts (91 pts) June 2023 RRP $36
