Domaine Rewa Chardonnay 2021, Central Otago

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 30-Oct-2023
Bright, pale straw-yellow with some depth, even colour throughout. The nose is elegantly presented with power, penetrating aromas of stonefruit, citrus, overlying spice, roasted nuts and buttered popcorn. Medium-full bodied, aromas of apricot and peach intertwined with lemon, popcorn, almond, vanilla and delicate spice. The creamy mouthfeel is elegant and well-balanced, unfolding vanilla and spice details, along with rich, textural phenolics. Enlivening, juicy acidity provides good energy and lines to a lengthy, balanced finish. This amiable Chardonnay is elegantly balanced with plush fruit, energetic acidity and a textural palate. Match with scampi and grouper over the next 6-8 years. Made from Mendoza and Clone 15, handpicked, the whole bunch was pressed into tank, racked and transferred to barriques under spontaneous fermentation. Aged in oak for 9 months, 34% new oak, underwent MLF. 14.2% alc. BioGro organic certified. 19/20 pts (95 pts) Oct 2023 RRP $55
