McManis River Junction California Chardonnay 2016

Chardonnay from USA
Review Date : 09-Oct-2017
Bright, light lemon-hued straw-yellow colour, paler on the rim. The nose is fine in concentration with fresh, gently packed aromas of yellow stonefruits and citrus fruits harmoniously entwined with nutty oak. The aromatics are bright and vibrant. Medium-full bodied, the palate has a taut but concentrated heart of yellow stonefruits and citrus fruit, along with nutty and spicy oak notes. The mouthfeel is bright and lively with brisk acidity which carries the wine along a fine, textural, threaded line leading to a lingering citrussy finish. This is a bright and refreshing Chardonnay with stonefruit and citrus flavours along with nutty and spicy oak on a brisk palate with a fine line. Serve with grilled and roasted seafood and poultry dishes over the next 3+ years. Fruit from River Junction fermented in stainless-steel to 13.5% alc., the wine aged in new and seasoned French and American oak, with approx. two-thirds undergoing MLF. 16.5+/20 Oct 2017 RRP $25.00
