Mahi ‘Twin Valleys’ Marlborough Chardonnay 2008

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 12-Feb-2011
This is an excellent Chardonnay that reveals more in the glass. Bright straw yellow with green hues to the colour, this has fresh, bright citrus fruit aromas complexed by sweet, nutty oak on the nose. Tight and detailed on bouquet, this is echoed on the palate with fruit ripeness and mealy nuances apparent. The refreshing acidity is balanced by a richness and creamy texture from the fruit, resulting in a building of weight and length. This is a classical Marlborough Chardonnay that will continue to develop over the next 4-5 years. Made from clone 95 fruit from the Twin Valley vineyard sited where the Wairau Valley joins the Waihopi. Fully indigenous yeast fermented in French barriques to 14.0% and aged 11 months in these barrels. 18.5/20 Dec 2010 RRP $34.90
