Forrest Marlborough Chardonnay 2013

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 31-Aug-2016
Equal portions tank and barrel-fermented to 12.5% alc., the oaked portion in barrel for 10 months with MLF. Brilliant straw-yellow. This has a firm, gunflinty nose, quite tightly bound with a complex amalgam of stonefruits and savoury nutty elements. Fresh and crisp on palate, the barrel portion providing some richness and creaminess. Good acidity and crispness to balance along with fine textures. The flintiness is more restrained on palate, and toasty oak shows. 17.5+/20 Aug 2016 RRP $25.00
