Maori Point Chardonnay 2022, Central Otago

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 20-Dec-2022
Bright, even, pale straw-yellow. The nose is fresh and elegantly full, with intense aromas of stonefruit, citrus, zest, delicate spice and a hint of pastry. Medium-bodied, concentrated aromas of nectarine fills the palate, entwined with ripe Meyer lemon, lemon zest, unfolding vanilla, spice, subtle pastry nuance and spiced cashew. The fruit is sweetly ripened with an excellent balance of acidity; elegant oak details contribute complexity and a light grip. This is an elegant, sweet-fruited Chardonnay with oak complexity and a textural, lightly creamy palate. Match with poultry and grouper over the next 5+ years. Handpicked, whole bunch pressed, wild yeast fermented and aged on lees for 10 months in oak barrels. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Dec 2022 RRP $38
