Corofin ‘Carter Ashmore Vineyard – North Corner’ Marlborough Chardonnay 2014

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 20-Feb-2016
Bright, light golden-hued straw-yellow colour. The nose is full and solidly packed with a tight core of ripe citrus and stonefruits, melded with layers of creamy barrel-ferment and complexing lemon-curd MLF elements. Mineral and nutty, oxidative suggestions emerge in the glass. Medium-bodied, this is very fresh and vibrant, the mouthfeel one of vitality, crispness and steely freshness. The palate possesses a tight and elegant core with stonefruit flavours with some subtle creamy and nutty oak. This has cut and raciness, and the wine flows with tension, carrying to a very long, refreshing finish. This is a tight, crisp and refreshingly steely Chardonnay with a rich and fulome, creamy nose. Serve with seafood and pork over the next 4-5 years. Mendoza clone fruit, hand-picked, with 50% crushed for solids, and fully-barrel-fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 14 months in seasoned French oak on lees without batonnage, but undergoing full MLF. 50 dozen made. 18.0/20 Feb 2016 RRP $48.00
