Brodie Estate Martinborough Chardonnay 2014

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 14-Sep-2015
Bright, light straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, pale on the im. The nose is full and rich with aromas of citrus and yellow stonefruits harmoniously melded with layers of savoury and spicy, nutty oak, creamy barrel-ferment elements and buttery, lemon-curd MLF nuances. Oak toastiness emerges in the glass. Medium-bodied and elegantly presented, rich citrus and stonefruit flavours are layered with nutty and creamy oak, with buttery MLF elements and toasty nuances. This has a soft-textured core and a harmoniously smooth-flowing mouthfeel. The textures are soft and fine and the acidity well-balanced, and the wine leads to a soft, lingering dry finish of cream, toast and citrus fruit. This is a rich, creamy textured, citrussy Chardonnay with distinctive toasty oak notes. Match with roast pork over the next 5+ years. Mendoza and clone 15 fruit from the ‘Croft’ vineyard, Pirinoa Road, barrel-fermented in seasoned barriques and one new 480 L puncheon to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 8 months on lees with 4 months in barrel and partial MLF. 100 cases made. 18.0-/20 Sep 2015 RRP $30.00
