Envoy Marlborough Chardonnay 2008

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 12-Feb-2011
Pale-edged straw-yellow in colour, this has a youthful appearance and a full nose of nectarine and white peachy fruit allied to nutty oak and lees, and a touch of reduction. Medium-full bodied at 13.0% alc., the fruit flavours of melons and mealy stonefruit sit with nutty oak and complex lees elements. There is a drying, fine, textural grip and the wine delivers more with time in the glass. Match with seafood and all white meat dishes over the next 4-5+ years. Made from clone B5 and 15 from the ‘Johnson Estate B Block', whole bunch pressed barrel fermented and aged 18 months on lees. 17.5+/20 Feb 2011 RRP $40.00
