Jules Taylor Marlborough Chardonnay 2016

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 01-May-2017
Bright straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, pale edged. The nose is full and voluminous with up-front, refreshing yellow stonefruit and citrus fruit aromas melded a lemon-curd and butterscotch MLF layer to form a deep core, which reveals subtle creamy and nutty oak elements. Medium-full bodied, the palate has a bright and lively heart of stonefruits and citrus fruits along with creamy barrel-ferment and nutty oak notes, overlaid by lemon-curd and butterscotch MLF flavours. The mouthfeel is refreshing with brisk acidity and the wine flows along a fine-textured line, leading to a lacy finish of citrus fruits and butterscotch. This is a bright and lively, refreshing Chardonnay stonefruit and citrus flavours, balanced oak and layers of creamy, buttery MLF. Serve with creamy-sauced seafood, poultry and pork dishes over the next 3-4 years. Fruit from 3 sites in the Southern Valleys, WBP and indigenous yeast barrel-fermented with light solids to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 9 months in French oak undergoing batonnage and partial MLF conversion. 17.5/20 May 2017 RRP $21.90
