Charles Wiffen Chardonnay 2018, Marlborough

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 07-Sep-2020
Bright, straw-yellow with some depth, faintly lighter on edge. This is elegantly presented, gently penetrating aromas of stonefruit, melded with almond, nougat and subtle vanillin. Medium-bodied, aromas of lemons, apricots have a good core, entwined with bitter almonds, cashews and a touch of vanilla cream. The wine flows smoothly and seamlessly with lacy, integrated acidity, carries interwoven nutty oak elements and toasty complexity, leading an elegant linear finish. Lightly creamy palate and a light phenolic fine texture have broadened the palate dimension, rounding to complete expression. This is a harmonious Chardonnay with flavours of stonefruit, vanilla, nutty, creamy details. Match with grilled game fish, salt-baked chicken over the next 3 years. 13% alc. 18.5/20 pts Sept 2020 RRP $25
