Middle-Earth Nelson Chardonnay 2016

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 07-Aug-2018
Bright, even, light golden-yellow colour, a little paler on the edge. The nose is elegant in presentation with fresh aromas of white and yellow stonefruits along with subtle, fragrant nutty and spicy oak. The aromatics are slender, but with depth, and possess a refreshing minerally cut. Medium-full bodied, the palate is elegant in presentation with light white and yellow stonefruit flavours, along with restrained nutty and spicy oak. Fresh, lacy acidity lends freshness to the mouthfeel and the wine flows along a smooth line with underlying alcohol drive leading to a lingering finish of stonefruits. This is an elegant. fresh, fruit-focussed Chardonnay with stonefruit and subtle nutty detail on a smooth driven line with acid energy. Match with seafood and poultry over the next 3+ years. Chardonnay fruit, clones 15 and Mendoza, tank-fermented with high solids to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 10 months in French and American oak, undergoing batonnage and MLF. 17.0+/20 Aug 2018 RRP $24.00
