Moana Park Estate Growers Collection Chardonnay 2020, Gisborne

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Gisborne
Review Date : 26-Nov-2020
Bright, pale golden-yellow, even colour throughout. The nose fresh and soft, nuances of ripe apple, pear along with stonefruit overlay a creamy lees element and sweet vanilla. Medium-bodied, the palate is fresh with crunchy flavours of apple, pear along with white peach, intermix vanilla and cinnamon. The mouthfeel is moderately broad, lead by a creamy flow with smoothness and energy. Fresh acid carry spices through the palate lingers to a moderate length finish. Match this with pulled-pork sandwiches and calamari over the next 2 years. 100% Clone 15 fruit from Witters Block, machine harvested, gently pressed reductively, juice clarified vis floatation, fermented in stainless steel tanks and barriques to 13% alc. On light lees for an extended period, 24% new oak (30% American, 70% French). NZVS Vegan Certified. 17.5/20 pts (88 pts) Nov 2020 RRP $18
