Corbans ‘1902’ Gisborne Chardonnay 2013

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Gisborn
Review Date : 21-Mar-2017
Bright, lemon-gold hued yellow colour with some depth, lighter edged. The nose is fresh, firmly concentrated and penetrating with aromas of citrus fruit entwined with nutty, toasty and spicy oak, along with nuances of creamy barrel-ferment and gunflint detail. Medium-full bodied, the palate features a tight and firm, concentrated core of fresh citrus fruit entwined with spicy and toasty oak. Creamy barrel-ferment and flinty notes add complexity. The palate has good linearity and drive, and follows a fine-textured line with bright, enlivening acidity, leading to a long, lingering citrussy and toasty finish. This is a firm, concentrated and fresh Chardonnay with intense citrus, toast and flinty flavours on a linear palate. Serve with seafood, poultry and pork over the next 4+ years. Gisborne fruit barrel-fermented to 13.8% alc., the wine aged 12 months in 29% new French oak, undergoing batonnage and partial MLF. 17.5+/20 Mar 2017 RRP $19.99
