Natural Wine Co. Gisborne Organic Chardonnay 2015

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Gisborn
Review Date : 02-Aug-2016
Bright, even, light yellow colour with slight green hues, a little paler on the rim. The nose is elegantly concentrated with aromas of savoury citrus and yellow stonefruits and a subtle layer of nutty notes. This is fresh, bright and steely in expression. Medium-bodied, the palate possesses light, but mouthfilling, ethereal flavours of savoury citrus and yellow stonefruits, along with subtle nutty elements and hints of lemon-curd MLF. The fruit expression and mouthfeel is fresh, and lacy acidity lends some steeliness and energy. The palate has a slippery flow as it follows a fine phenolic thread leading to a finish with citrus and nutty elements. This is a light, gently mouthfilling Chardonnay with savoury citrus and nutty flavours. Match with seafood, poultry and pork over the next 2-3 years. Clone 15 fruit from the estate Manutuke vineyard, hand-picked and indigenous yeast fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine given limited oak contact, undergoing partial MLF. Certified Asurequality organic. 16.5+/20 Aug 2016 RRP $19.95
