Cable Bay Awatere Valley Marlborough Chardonnay 2014

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 12-Jan-2015
Fruit from the ‘Redwood Pass Road’ vineyard stainless-steel fermented to 13.5% alc., 12% aged in barrel the remainder in tank on lees for 7 months. Very pale straw-yellow colour, lighter on rim. This has an elegant, penetrating, precise nose of white peaches with citrus notes and lifted white florals along with minerally elements adding detail. Dry and medium-full bodied, tightly bound flavours of citrus fruits and white stonefruits show with a subtle lusciousness flowing along a soft-textured line. The wine is bright and lively with crisp acidity enlivening the fruit. This is refreshing and has excellent cut, leading to a tight, pristine finish with sustained stonefruit nuances. This is a crisp, refreshing and elegant Chardonnay with white stonefruit flavours and good cut. Serve as an aperitif and match with seafood over the next 3+ years. 17.5+/20 Jan 2014 RRP $23.50
