Nanny Goat Vineyard Queensberry Chardonnay 2021, Central Otago

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 08-Aug-2022
Bright, even, pale yellow with depth. The nose is full, packed with aromas of ripe apricot, nectarine interweave citrus, raw almond, clarified butter and toasty hints. Medium-full bodied, aromas of ripe apricot and nectarine are mouth-filling, entwined with citrus peel, almond and toasted brioche. The fruit is concentrated and forward, with ripeness and generosity. A creamy mouthfeel carries nutty and toasty elements with ease along a chalky mineral palate. Integrated lively acidity flows with good energy to a long, nutty finish. This is a generous Chardonnay packed with stonefruit, toast and an opulent, creamy mouthfeel. Match with hazelnut-crusted grouper and roasted chicken over the next 3-5 years. 100% clone 15, handpicked, whole bunch pressed, fermented in 500L French oak puncheon with high solids, naturally fermented to 14% alc with occasional lees stirring, underwent full MLF in barrel, aged for 10 months, 20% new oak. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Aug 2022 RRP $57
