John Forrest ‘Collection’ Waitaki Valley North Otago Chardonnay 2008

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 02-Sep-2011
Fermented to 13.8% alc. and aged in seasoned French oak, this has a full, even, straw-yellow colour with elegant, cool, mineral and white stonefruit aromas complexed by some flintiness. Dry with crisp acidity, the nutty, minerally flavours are initially restrained, but this blossoms in the mouth with florals and stonefruits, and spicy oak showing. This has an underlying gentle power and will keep another 4-6 years. Serve with shellfish. 120 dozen made. A take on Chablis.  Aug 2011
