Giesen Uncharted Chardonnay 2020, Marlborough

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 15-Dec-2020
Bright, pale yellow with some depth, even colour throughout. The nose is soft and poise, aromas of citrus, pineapple entwined with barrel-fermented notes of flint and creamy lees nuances. Medium-full bodied, the palate is well-packed with pineapple, Meyer lemons and peaches; enriched by well-proportioned oak spices and flint. The palate is creamy with a lightness supported by lacy acidity and a fine spicy, phenolic textured-line, linger to a harmonious, sustained finish. Match with monkfish stew and chicken & corn over the next 3-5 years. Handpicked fruit from Southern and Wairau Valley, fermented and aged in French oak hogshead, puncheons and 1,000L German Fuder for 10 months, 10% new oak, 18% one-year-old oak with the balance older. 13.5% alc, 1.2g/l RS. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Dec 2020 RRP $29.99
