Fromm ‘Clayvin Vineyard’ Marlborough Chardonnay 2013

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 22-Nov-2015
Bright straw-yellow colour with light, lemon-green hues, pale on edge. The bouquet is very tight and refined, with seamlessly interwoven detail, showing white stonefruits, white florals, nutty elements and savoury barrel-ferment nuances, unfolding the faintest suggestion of flinty complexities with lemon-curd MLF elements. This is fresh, youthful and harmoniously balanced. Medium-full bodied, the palate features a deep core with fresh and bright flavours of white stonefruits, white florals and rich nutty layers. The mouthfeel is very fine featured and fine-textured, and follows a fresh line of acidity. The concentration and finesse are beautifully balanced and the winr carries with excellent energy to a long, thirst-quenching, dry-textured, refined finish. This is a stylishly restrained, elegantly concentrated Chardonnay with classical white stonefruit and nutty flavours reminiscent of white burgundy. Serve with seafood and most white meat dishes over the next 5-6 years. Fruit from the ‘Clayvin’ vineyard, Brancott Valley, fully indigenous yeast barrel-fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 16 months in seasoned French oak barriques with no batonnage, but 100% MLF. 75 dozen made. 18.5+/20 Nov 2015 RRP $68.30
