Black Cottage Chardonnay 2021, Marlborough

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 04-Aug-2021
Bright, yellow colour with some depth, lighter on edge. The nose is full, smoky with a hint of reductive struck match, toasted nuts, underlying stonefruit. Medium-full bodied, aromas melon, stonefruit intermix smoke and nuts. Rich on the palate with toastiness, support by sufficient acidity to a citrusy finish. Match with chicken stew and cheese toasty over the next 2 years. Fermented on light solids to 12.5% alc, full MLF, aged with French oak. 15.5/20 pts (78 pts) Aug 2021 RRP $20
