Main Divide Chardonnay 2022, North Canterbury

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 09-Apr-2023
Bright, even, pale straw yellow. The nose is full, revealing aromas of struck match, roasted nuts, stonefruit, citrus and pastry. Medium-full bodied, aromas of stonefruit melded with citrus peels, almonds, custard Danish underlined struck match and stony minerals. The wine is complex and savoury, enlivened by a bright acid line that provides length and tension. Match with hazelnut-crusted grouper and roasted chicken with chestnut stuffing over the next 5 years. The fruit was gently pressed, fermented in large French oak barriques by the grapes' natural yeasts to 12.9% alc. Aged in barriques on its lees, underwent spontaneous MLF. 18.5-/20 pts (92 pts) Apr 2023 RRP $21.99
