Chardonnay from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 15-Jan-2022
Bright, straw yellow with depth, slightly lighter on the rim. The wine has an enticing elegance, generously fills the glass with aromas of pear, stonefruit, interweave toasty oak, spice and oyster shell. Medium-full bodied, excellent acidity tension flows with lemon, pear and apricot, spice tingle, and toasty oak detail. Oyster shell minerals contribute to a fine-textured mouthfeel and creaminess supported by beautiful acid tension. This is a harmonious and radiant Chardonnay with excellent acid tension, elegant fruit, balanced oak details and a fine-textured mouthfeel. Match with lemon chicken and bouillabaisse over the next 3-5 years. 100% barrel fermented (20% new oak) to 13.3% alc, aged in barrels for 10 months and lees stirred monthly. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Jan 2022 RRP $28
