Brookfields ‘Bergman’ Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay 2017

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 18-Oct-2018
Bright, light golden-hued yellow colour with some depth, a little lighter on the edge. The nose is firmly presented with very good depth, intensity and concentration of layered aromas of white and yellow stonefruits with citrus fruits, along with nutty, toasty oak and a little lemon-curd and butterscotch MLF adding interest. Medium-full bodied, the palate has moderately rich flavours of yellow stonefruits and citrus fruit along with a layer of nutty oak and some lemon-curd and butterscotch detail. This has good body, presence and drive, with power, and the wine flows along a very fine-textured line with lacy acidity leading to a light, elegant finish. This is a firmly presented Chardonnay with intense stonefruit and citrus flavours, nutty oak and lemon-curd MLF on a palate with presence and drive, leading to an elegant finish. Match with roasted poultry and pork over the next 3-4 years. Fruit from the ‘Ohiti Estate’ fully barrel-fermented 50% by indigenous yeasts to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 9 months on lees in predominantly French oak, with some American, a small portion new, with approx. 30% MLF. 17.5/20 Oct 2018 RRP $20.00
