Hihi ‘The Full Monty’ Gisborne Chardonnay 2016

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Gisborn
Review Date : 23-Apr-2017
Bright, full yellow colour with light golden hues and some depth. This has a fresh, elegantly concentrated and full nose with yellow stonefruit and citrus fruit aromas, along with lifted lemon-curd MLF notes which build in depth with aeration. Medium-bodied, the palate is up-front with sweetly rich flavours of ripe citrus fruits and tropical fruits interwoven with a layering of creamy and buttery MLF flavours. The palate is rich, luscious and rounded with a fine-textured guiding line and good acid vitality for balance. The mouthfilling flavours carry to a full, broad finish. This is an up-front rounded Chardonnay with mouthfilling citrus and tropical fruit flavours layered with creamy and buttery MLF. Drink this Chardonnay over the next 3 years. Fruit from the ‘Jackson’ vineyard, Patutahi, fermented in ‘Flextank’ barrels to 13.0% alc., the wine given American and French oak additions, and undergoing 100% MLF. 17.5/20 Apr 2017 RRP $19.00
