Misty Cove ‘Signature’ Marlborough Chardonnay 2013

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 15-Apr-2014
Bright straw-yellow colour with some depth. The nose is tightly bound with aromas of white stonefruits and citrus fruit, lifted by fragrant oak and subtle buttery barrel-ferment and nutty oak elements, refreshed by steely elements. Medium-bodied, softly concentrated and moderately luscious, clean stonefruit and citrus fruit flavours are supported by crisp and racy acidity forming a palate line with good linearity. Delicate creamy textures emerge along with nutty oak notes, providing interest and detail. The palate leads to a soft, rounded and creamy finish. This is a fresh, crisp and softly textured Chardonnay with fruit clarity and subtle flavour detail. Match with seafood, poultry and Mediterranean fare over the next 4 years. Fruit from the ‘Rapaura’ vineyard, WBP and fully barrel-fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 9 months in seasoned French oak, undergoing batonnage. 17.5/20 Apr 2014 RRP $29.99
