Pa Road Chardonnay 2021, Marlborough

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 10-Jun-2022
Bright, even, pale yellow with depth and a hint of green sheen. The nose is crisp, softly penetrating aromas of grilled pineapple, pear and citrus with a subtle hint of spice. Medium-full bodied, aromas of grilled pineapple, intertwined pear, grapefruit, spice and creamy custard. Salivating acidity flows with good energy, carrying juicy fruit and subtle phenolic texture through to a moderately long finish. This elegant Chardonnay shows succulent fruit, creamy and spice details supported by vibrant acidity and left a fresh finish. Match with siu mai and pan-seared fish over the next 3 years. 100% Chardonnay fruit sourced from 62% Central Wairau Valley, 38% Southern Valleys, machine harvested, fermented to 13.5% alc, left on lees for 9 months with occasional stirring, underwent 85% MLF. 17.5+/20 pts (89 pts) June 2022 RRP $17.95
