Mount Brown North Canterbury Chardonnay 2017

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 01-Oct-2018
Bright pale straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, lighter on the rim. The nose is softly fresh with elegantly concentrated aromas of citrus fruit entwined with subtle, balancing nutty oak with a little toast, unfolding some mineral nuances. This has depth to the aromatics. Medium-full bodied, the palate has good weight and presence with restrained flavours of fresh citrus fruit along with subtle notes of aromatic nutty oak. The mouthfeel is softly textured with refreshing acidity providing energy, and the wine carries to a lively finish. This is a gently flavoured, fresh Chardonnay with citrussy fruit and subtle nutty oak on a soft, but mouthwatering palate with some presence. Serve with seafood and poultry over the next 3 years. Chardonnay clones 1066, 548 and 465, the first harvest for Mount Brown, fully barrel-fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 18 months in 30% new oak with no MLF. 17.0+/20 Oct 2018 RRP $19.99
