Mountford Waipara Chardonnay 2009

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 03-Nov-2012
Estate fruit fermented and matured 20 months in 30% new French oak with 100% MLF. Bright, light, lemony-gold colour. This has a bouquet of savoury citrus fruits forming a complex amalgam with nutty, oxidative elements and flinty, steely notes. Quite open and accessible, this is very white burgundian. Full-bodied, complex citrus and nutty flavours show with breadth on the palate. Bruised apple oxidative nuances, mealy hints and some oak spices are present, and the mouthfeel has acid cut as a feature providing a freshness to the texture. The wine finishes long, nutty and dry. Very much in a traditional, oxidatively-handled Meursault style, to drink over the next 3 years.. 18.0-/20 Oct 2012 RRP $49.95
