Forrest Chardonnay 2021, Marlborough

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 11-May-2022
Bright, straw-yellow, even colour throughout. The nose is gently-full and growing in stonefruit, citrus aromas, intermixed savoury lees and spice underlay. Full-bodied, peach and nectarine entwined with grapefruit, buttery nuance unfold, along with mealy autolysis and sweet oak spices. The fruit possesses gentle intensity and complexity with balanced, ripe acidity. Fine-textured phenolics and minerals provide a textural mouthfeel, flowing with good energy to a long, crisp finish. Match with roasted chicken with confit garlic and pork chops over the next 5-7 years. Fermented and aged in oak, 14% alc. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) May 2022 RRP $28
