Obliix Chardonnay 2022, Gimblett Gravels Hawke’s Bay

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 10-Apr-2024
Bright, even, pale straw yellow. This has a gently full bouquet with power, penetrating aromas of toast, roasted almonds, citrus, and stonefruit. Full-bodied aromas of grapefruit, lemon peels and stonefruit are accompanied by roasted almonds and toasty oak details, lingering with spice. The palate is full and textural; firm phenolics contribute to the structure and reflect Gimblett Gravels' soils. Layers of flint, vanilla, and spice flow along with tension to a sustained finish. Match with pasta with chicken and pork over the next 3-5 years. Fermented to 13% alc. 18+/20 pts (91 pts) Apr 2024 RRP $21.99
