Montana ‘Reserve’ Gisborne Chardonnay 2016

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Gisborn
Review Date : 12-Jun-2017
Bright yellow colour with some depth and light golden hues, lighter on the rim. This has an elegantly proportioned and rounded nose with aromas of tropical fruits and an amalgam of nutty and spicy oak with buttery MLF elements. Medium-bodied, the palate has up-front, ripe tropical fruit flavours melded with a layering of nutty oak and butterscotch MLF. The palate shows fruit sweetness and flows easily along a fine-textured line with lacy acidity providing freshness. The wine has a good heart and carries with good linearity to a lingering finish of butterscotch. This is an up-front tropical fruited Chardonnay with a layering of nutty oak and butterscotch on a rounded, fine-textured palate with some richness. Serve with roast pork over the next 2+ years. Gisborne fruit fermented to 13.5% alc. and 1.75 g/L RS, the wine given oak contact, undergoing batonnage and MLF conversion. 17.0/20 Jun 2017 RRP $16.99
