Black Cottage Chardonnay 2020, Marlborough

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 06-Nov-2020
Bright, light-yellow, even colour throughout. The nose is softly-full, youthful and ripe aromas of pear, lemon curd underlying creamy lees element and a touch of sweet vanilla spice. Medium-bodied, mouthwatering lemon, pink grapefruit melded with lemon curd, subtle spices and vanilla lifted on the finish with some creaminess. The flavours are just ripe and integrated. Fresh acidity guides the wine through the palate with vibrancy along a subtle and fine-textured line. This is a smooth Chardonnay with straightforward citrus, and pear aromas on subtle vanilla noted creamy balance. Match with pan-fried white fish and spaghetti carbonara over the next 2 years. Fermented on light solids to 12.5% alc, 2.5 g/l RS. Full MLF, aged in French oak for several months. 17/20 pts (85 pts) Nov 2020 RRP $19.99
