Maori Point Chardonnay 2023, Central Otago

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 04-Jan-2024
Bright, even, pale straw yellow. The nose is gently full and elegantly expressed with aromas of apple, pear and stonefruit, along with honeysuckle and delicate spice. Medium-full bodied, aromas of apple and pear entwined with peach, honeysuckle and delicate, prickly spice. The mouthfeel is silky with fine-textured phenolics and spice. A touch of creamy lees contributes mouthfeel; enlivening acidity carries spice to an elegant, long finish. This stylish Chardonnay is elegantly complex with a silky texture, freshness and balance. Match with scampi and chicken ballotine over the next 5-7 years. Handpicked, foot-stomped, basket-pressed, fermented in oak barrels to 13.5% alc, underwent full MLF. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Jan 2024 RRP $36.50
