Martinborough Vineyard Home Block Chardonnay 2021, Martinborough

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 01-May-2023
Bright, pale yellow, even colour throughout. The nose is lifted and gentle, with soft citrus, stonefruit, blossom and subtle spice aromas. Medium-bodied, aromas of grapefruit and apricot melded with blossom, hazelnut and delicate spice. The wine is lifted and elegant with clean fruit and blossom expression, supported by a soft and fine acid line; subtle details in the texture and spice dusting contribute to layers and elegance. This is a refined Chardonnay with citrus, stonefruit and blossom details, effortless flow, and delicate textures. Match with sweet shrimp sashimi and scallops carpaccio over the next 5-7 years. Handpicked, whole bunch pressed, settled, racked to French oak barrels for fermentation with indigenous yeasts to 13.5% alc, aged on lees for 12 months, underwent 90% MLF. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) May 2023 RRP $40
