Five Oaks Moutere Nelson Chardonnay 2013

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 09-Feb-2014
Nelson fruit fermented in barrel and with stave inserts to 12.5% alc., 90% undergoing MLF. Brilliant light straw-yellow colour with slight green-gold hues. The bouquet is light with fresh white stonefruit and citrus aromas, along with spicy oak nuances and an underlay of butterscotch and nuts from the MLF. Dry to taste and light-bodied, soft and gentle flavours of citrus fruits are carried by a palate with a harmonious and vinous mouthfeel. The fruit is balanced with light butterscotch creamy hints and fresh acidity. Soft, grainy textures and nutty oak emerge, providing the initial linearity, and this fades to a clean, dry finish. This is a clean, light, citrussy Chardonnay with a butterscotch underlay. Serve with seafood and poultry over the next 2+ years. 16.5-/20 Feb 2014 RRP $12.99
