Mud House ‘Sub Region Series’ ‘Omaka’ Marlborough Chardonnay 2015

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 10-Nov-2016
Bright, straw-yellow colour with slight geen hues, paler on the rim. The nose is tightly bound, steely and fresh with subtle stonefruit and citrus fruit aromas entwined with delicate creamy and nutty barrel-ferment notes, delicate lemon-curd MLF and mineral notes. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, this has a crisp and tightly concentrated palate of steely citrus fruit along with refreshing acidity an suggestions of creamy, nutty oak and hints of lemon-curd MLF. The acidity is bright and the wine flows a light-textured phenolic line that leads to a dry finish of citrus fruits and nuts. This is a tightly concentrated Chardonnay with refreshingly steely citrus fruit flavours, brisk acidity and a fine, dry-textured line. Match with seafood and creamy poultry and pork dishes over the next 3 years. Fruit from ‘Omaka’ fermented in tank and barrel to 13.0% alc., 30% of the wine the wine aged 4 months on lees in oak with some batonnage and 10-15% undergoing MLF. 584 cases made. 16.5+/20 Nov 2016 RRP $20.00
