Lake Road Gisborne Chardonnay 2013

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Gisborn
Review Date : 27-Aug-2013
Fruit from the Patutahi district tank-fermented to 14.2% alc. and dryness, the wine given light oak treatment. Bright, full straw-yellow colour with slight golden hues. This is light and tightly bound on bouquet with firm and straightforward aromas of yellow stonefruits with a steely, flinty note. Dry and medium-full bodied, flavours of white stonefruits combine with subtle herb elements forming a good core with sweet oak and nutty elements adding detail. The palate line features fresh acid drive with underlying grainy textures, and some alcohol power noticeable. The flavours lead to a dry, nutty, oak-nuanced, moderately sustained finish. This is a steely, fresh Chardonnay with a fulsome mouthfeel and flavours of stonefruits and nuts. Match with roasted and grilled paltry and pork dishes over the next 3+ years. 16.5/20 Aug 2013 RRP $15.99
