Julicher Martinborough Chardonnay 2015

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 28-Oct-2017
Bright, light golden-yellow colour with some depth, lighter on edge. The nose is elegantly concentrated with finely packed and deep aromas of ripe yellow stonefruit entwined with nutty oak and oxidative complexities, unfolding citrus fruit notes with aeration. Medium-bodied, the palte has a tightly concentrated core with flavours of yellow stonefruits melded with nutty notes, a little creamy barrel-ferment and complexing oxidative elements. The palate features a firm, fine-textured line with crisp acidity providing freshness and energy. Citrus flavours emerge as the wine leads to a tight, lingering finish. This is a firm and concentrated Chardonnay with tightly bound flavours of stonefruit and citrus fruit and complex nutty and oxidative notes on a crisp palate. Serve with seafood and poultry over the next 3+ years. Clone 15 and Mendoza fruit from ‘Julicher Estate’, WBP and fermented in seasoned French oak to 13.13% alc., the wine aged 10 months on lees in barrel, undergoing partial MLF. 17.0/20 Oct 2017 RRP $24.00
