Moana Park Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay Pet Nat 2018

Sparkling Wine from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 05-Jun-2018
Light golden-yellow colour with some depth, pale on the rim and a little opaque, the bubbles fine and with good persistence. The nose is softly full with fresh aromas of sweetly ripe peaches and yellow stonefruits, along with citrus and tropical fruit notes, along with some nutty-yeasty elements unfolding fresh herb nuances. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is up-front with broad and accessible, ripe fruit flavours of peaches and tropical fruits with citrus fruit elements. The mouthfeel is fresh and soft with creamy effervescence adding roundness, and the palate has fresh, brisk underlying acidity for balance. The fruit flavours are mouthfilling and the wine carries to a gently full, lighter flavoured finish. This is a fresh, up-front and accessible peachy dry Pet Nat sparkling with creamy effervescence and underlying fresh acidity. Serve as an aperitif over the next 18 months to 2 years. A petillant natural wine. 100% Chardonnay clone 95 from a single site in Twyford, and indigenous yeast fermented in tank to 18 g/L RS, then transferred to bottle to finish primary ferment at 12.5% alc. and <1 g/L RS. 988 bottles made. 17.5/20 Jun 2018 RRP $30.00
