Delta ‘Hatters Hill’ Marlborough Chardonnay 2016

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 19-Jul-2018
Bright straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, paler on the edge. The nose is powerfully concentrated with deep, intense and tightly bound aromas of citrus fruit and white stonefruits entwined with spicy, nutty and toasty oak. The aromatics are fresh and youthful, verging slender in proportion, but with excellent penetration and depth. Medium-bodied, the palate is tightly bound with a concentrated core of citrus and stonefruit entwined with spicy, nutty and toasty oak flavours. This is firm and intense at the heart.. The palate is fresh and crisp, with bright, lively acidity guiding the wine to a long, lingering finish. This is a firmly concentrated and intense Chardonnay with stonefruit and citrus fruit entwined with strong spicy, nutty and toasty oak notes. Match with grilled and roasted seafood and poultry dishes over the next 3-4 years. Fruit from the ‘Sawcut’ vineyard, Ure Valley, hand-picked, WBP and fully barrel-fermented to 13.0% alc. the wine aged 10 months in 39% new French oak barriques undergoing batonnage and 100% MLF. 18.0/20 Jul 2018 RRP $28.99
