Nga Waka Chardonnay 2022, Martinborough

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 08-Jan-2024
Bright, even, pale straw yellow with depth. The nose is poised, with aromas of stonefruit, citrus, butter popcorn, vanilla and hints of spice. Medium-full bodied, aromas of peach, apricot, lemon sorbet, grapefruit, and enriched by butter popcorn, vanilla and delicate spice. The fruit shows depth and harmonious flavours; the round and creamy mouthfeel contributes to weight, and crunchy acidity persists a lingering finish. This Chardonnay is well-made and well-balanced in a classic house style. Match with chicken and grouper over the next 3+ years. Barrel fermented, 13.5% alc. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Jan 2024 RRP $30
