Brookfields Vineyards Marshall Bank Chardonnay 2019, Hawke’s Bay

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 13-Aug-2020
Bright, light yellow with some depth, youthful, even colour throughout. The bouquet is elegant with aromas of ripe stonefruit, peaches and nectarines, along with baking spices and toasty oak details. Medium-full bodied, the palate is filled with concentrated fruit notes of peaches, nectarines, lemons, entwined with hazelnut, toasty and nutty oak details. The mouthfeel is voluminous and textural, fine phenolic and buttery creaminess flow smoothly with lively acidity balance, carries spices and nutty oak detail to a long sustained finish. This is a harmoniously balanced medium-full bodied Chardonnay with stonefruit, spice and nutty oak details. Match with roasted chicken and cheese fondue over the next 4-6 years. Fermented to 14% alc, in 50% new, 50% near new French oak barriques and aged in barrels for 10 months. 20% MLF. 18.5+/20 pts Aug 2020 RRP $37
