Clark Estate Penelope Jane Chardonnay 2022, Marlborough

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 27-Feb-2023
Bright, even, pale yellow. The nose is gentle with stonefruit, citrus, toast and spice aromas. Medium-bodied, aromas of lemon and grapefruit intermixed with apricot, spice and toasty oak elements. Lively acidity flows smoothly with fine-textured phenolics; subtle, elegant toastiness enlivens the finish and closes on a rich note. This Chardonnay is approachable and elegant, with well-portioned oak details adding interest. Match with pork and fish over the next 3-4 years. Fruit from Awatere Valley, fermented to 13.5% alc, aged in older oak barrels for several months on lees, underwent 30% MLF. 18/20 pts (90 pts) Feb 2023 RRP $32
