Grower’s Mark ‘Tansley Road Vineyard’ Gisborne Oaked Chardonnay 2014

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Gisborn
Review Date : 20-Dec-2016
Bright straw-yellow colour with green-gold hues, lighter on the rim. The bouquet is very fresh and steely with aromas of citrus, and white and yellow stonefruits along with a fine, firm amalgam of lemon-curd MLF, and nutty, toasty oak. Medium-bodied, the palate is gently flavoured with a tight core of citrus fruits, yellow stonefruits, subtle lemon-curd MLF and a layering of toasty oak. The mouthfeel is crisp and steely, and finely presented with refreshing acidity with an energetic, slender line that finishes with light flavours of citrus fruit and toast. This is an elegant and gently-flavoured Chardonnay with citrus and toasty flavours, and a refreshing, steely mouthfeel. Match with grilled seafood poultry and pork over the next 3-4 years. A blend of 66% clone 548 and 34% Mendoza fruit, fermented to 13.6% alc., the wine oaked, undergoing full MLF. 17.0+/20 Sep 2016 RRP $16.99
