Matahiwi Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay 2016

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 14-Jun-2017
Bright, light golden-yellow colour with lemon hues, paler edged. The nose is fresh, lively and vibrant with aromas of citrus fruits and yellow stonefruits entwined with spicy and nutty oak notes. This is refreshing and mouthwatering and shows good depth and intensity. Medium-full bodied, the palate is bright and vigorous, with good intensity of citrus fruits layered with spicy and nutty oak flavours. The mouthfeel is zesty with crisp and racy acidity, and the wine carries with good energy and tension along a fine-textured line, leading to a long. lingering finish of citrus fruits and nuts. This is an intensely flavoured Chardonnay with citrussy fruit and spicy oak on a bright, racy palate. Match with grilled seafood, poultry and pork dishes over the next 3+ years. Mendoza and clone 15 fruit from the Dartmoor district, fermented in stainless-steel with a small portion in barrel with indigenous yeasts to 13.5% alc., the wine aged on lees. 17.5/20 Jun 2017 RRP $22.99
