Domaine Rewa Chardonnay 2020, Central Otago

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 01-Apr-2022
Bright, pale yellow with a hint of green sheen, even colour throughout. The nose is full, greeted with soft aromas of toasty oak, barrel spice underlying citrus, stonefruit and creamy detail. Full-bodied, aromas of apricot, lemon sherbet and grapefruit formed a fine core, enriched by toasted hazelnut, toast, cinnamon and a touch of cream. The fruit has great flavours and concentration, complimenting the youthful oak details; creamy feature softens the texture, acid tension drives focus to a long, elegant finish. This well-structured, youthful Chardonnay possesses excellent fruit and concentration with oak details and a creamy palate. Match with crispy pork belly and crayfish Thermidor over the next 8+ years. 13.5% alc. Handpicked clone Mendoza and 15, whole bunch pressed, wild-fermented in French oak barriques to 14.1% alc, and aged for 9 months, 36% new oak. Underwent MLF, weely lees stirred. Organic certified. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Mar 2022 RRP $55
