Heart of Gold Gisborne Chardonnay/Viognier 2009

Blended White from New Zealand - Gisborn
Review Date : 18-Jul-2011
The blend of Chardonnay and Viognier seems very compatible. This is 60% Chardonnay and 40% Viognier, wild yeast barrel fermented to 13.7% alc. and 2.9 g/L rs., given 50% MLF, then aged in 30% new French oak equivalence. Bright, light golden straw colour, this has a ripe tropical and peach fruited nose lifted with apricotty notes, quite dense, solid, voluminous and textured on nose. Dry, but with real richness and interest on palate, the interaction of ripe tropical fruits some exotic lift, spicy oak all comes together with an oily, unctuous mouthfeel. A full-bodied number. 130 cases made. 18.0-/20 Oct 2010 RRP $28.95 Disclaimer: This wine is distributed by ‘Wine2Trade', the company under which ‘Raymond Chan Wine Reviews' operates
