Black Estate Omihi Waipara Chardonnay 2010

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 21-Jun-2011
Fruit from 16 y.o. Mendoza clone vines, hand-harvested and whole bunch pressed, barrel-fermented with indigenous yeasts to 14.2% alc., the wine undergoing MLF and aged 11 months in oak, 36% new. Bright, full, light golden, straw-yellow colour, this has a bold and broad nose of ripe, yellow stonefruits, melons, and mealy nuanced fruit with good nutty, toasty oak. This is a full-bodied, open and accessible wine with brassy, ripe peach and citrus fruit flavours and equally expressed nutty oak backing. There is plenty of power and depth, and along with the acidity, the wine has the structure to keep well over the next 4-5 years, offering enjoyment all that time. Match with firm flesh fish, rich poultry and roasted pork. 18.0-/20 Jun 2011 RRP $32.95
