Moko Hills Chardonnay 2020, Central Otago

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 16-Sep-2022
Bright, slightly hazy (unfiltered), pale yellow with some depth, even colour throughout. The nose is bright and welcoming, with pure aromas of ripe stonefruit, citrus melded with toasted sesame, greek yoghurt, pastry and a hint of white floral. Medium-bodied, aromas of apricot and nectarine entwined with lemon sherbet, grapefruit and nectarine blossom, unveiling delicate spice, almond and a creamy underlay. The fruit is pure and raw, supported by a taut acid line. Creamy details linger and grow to a lightly nutty finish. This Chardonnay possesses natural and raw beauty showing a citrus, stonefruit core and acid tension with a balanced, creamy influence. Fruit from Bendigo subregion, clones UCD15 and B95, whole bunch pressed, full solids to 100% French oak, natural yeast fermentation, partial lees stirring. Aged 12 months in barrels, natural MLF, 13.6% alc, unfiltered. 19/20 pts (95 pts) Sep 2022 RRP $65
