Mills Reef Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay 2010

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 23-Jul-2012
Light, even, golden-yellow colour, up-front and full aromas of ripe citrus and yellow stonefruits unfold to reveal hints of smoky oak, nuts and flint interest. Medium-full bodied, attractively ripe peach, apricot and citrus flavours are enlivened by bright acidity. There is good mouthfeel, roundness and body with a creamy suggestion to the textures. The palate has good linear drive and the finish features nutty oak and hints of butter. This is a readily accessible and flavoursome Chardonnay with lively and up-front fruit along with nutty oak notes. Serve with pasta, poultry and pork dishes over the next 3-4 years. Fruit from the Meeanee district, partially fermented in seasoned oak barrels to 13.5% alc., and aged 6-9 months before blending. 17.0+/20 Jul 2012 RRP $18.95
