Matahiwi Holly South Series Chardonnay 2020, Wairarapa

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 16-Feb-2022
Bright, medium-yellow, even colour throughout. The nose is voluminous, filled the glass with smoky flint, toast, roasted almonds, underlying cream, citrus and stonefruit. Full-bodied, aromas of grapefruit, nectarine have concentration, enriched by smoky flint, roasted almonds and toast. The palate is rich with toasty oak details, concentrated ripe fruit withstand and broaden the dimension. Acid precision cut through the cream and linger to a long, toasty finish. This is a rich and toasty style Chardonnay with weight and bright fruit. Match with roasted pork and grilled tiger prawns over the next 5-8 years. Fruit from Masterton, clone 5, 95 and Mendoza, fermented in French oak barrels to 12.5% alc, 33% new oak, aged on full lees for 11 months, underwent MLF. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Feb 2022 RRP $32.99
