Black Cottage Chardonnay 2022, Gisborne

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Gisborne
Review Date : 17-Oct-2022
Bright, even, pale yellow with a slightly green hue. The nose is soft, with elegant aromas of citrus interweave stonefruit. Medium-light bodied, aromas of lemon, grapefruit and peach melded with citrus peels and a hint of spice. The palate is clean and fresh, supported by a lively acid line; citrus peels and spice added interest. The mouthfeel is lightly textured with a touch of cream. This is a crisp Chardonnay with a citrus core and a fine acid line. Match with seafood and chicken over the next 2-3 years. Fruit from the Ormond subregion, fermented in stainless steel to 12.5% alc, followed by minimal MLF and a touch of French oak. 17.5/20 pts (88 pts) Oct 2022 RRP $20
