Greystone Organic Chardonnay 2022, North Canterbury

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 14-Feb-2024
Bright, even, pale straw yellow with depth. The nose is powerful, displaying aromas of struck-match, toasty reduction underlying stonefruit and citrus. Full-bodied, aromas of grapefruit and apricot enriched with toast, struck-match and stony minerals. The enlivening acidity cuts through the rich, toasty reduction and drives a long, opulent finish. This is a powerful, rich Chardonnay with lengthy and bright acidity that carries weight and complexity. Match with roasted chicken and charcoal-grilled prawns over the next 5+ years. Handpicked, the Limestone block was whole bunch pressed, the Clay block was foot crushed before pressing, then fermented in French oak barriques without intervention, 18% new oak, underwent MLF, barrel aged for 9 months, unfined. 13.5% alc. Organic certified. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Feb 2024 RRP $50
