Greystone Waipara Chardonnay 2010

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 05-Oct-2011
Mendoza and clone 15 fruit, foot-crushed and fully barrel-fermented to 14.5% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 20% new French oak, with 45% MLF. Bright light golden yellow with a pale edge, the nose has piquant citrus and ripe yellow stonefruits interwoven with oak nuttiness and buttery MLF elements, quite tight and with good intensity. Concentrated and tight on palate, the citrussy fruit is lifted by spicy oak, and the creaminess of texture enlivened by excellent acidity. The palate has a sleekness and balance, resulting in poise. This will keep another 4-5 years.  Oct 2011
