Floating Mountain Waipara Chardonnay 2009

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 20-May-2012
Single vineyard wine, the fruit indigenous yeast fermented in stainless-steel to 13.8% alc., the wine aged on lees for 8 months with no oak contact. Bright straw-yellow colour with some lemon-green hues, this has a complex nose of citrus and stonefruits with nuts and flinty-earthy reductive notes. Full-bodied, this is mouthfilling with an array of dry stonefruit flavours along with nuts and minerals and some reduction adding interest. Some alcohol is noticeable, but is carried by bright and brisk acidity which carries to a long flinty finish. This is a funky, European-styled Chardonnay with reductive complexities and the weight to match with seafood and poultry over the next 3-4 years. 17.0-/20 May 2012 RRP $24.95
