Paddy Borthwick Chardonnay 2019, Wairarapa

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 11-Dec-2020
Bright, pale yellow with a green-gold hue and some depth, even colour throughout. The nose is fresh with clear layers aromas of citrus, lemon sherbet, white peach melded with creamy lees and a hint of hazelnut. Medium-bodied, the palate is elegantly presented, aromas of lemon sherbet, white peach have a good core, the palate broadens by well proportioned creamy lees, hazelnut and spices. Acidity is balanced and lacy, carries a subtle hint of minerality on a fine-textured line. The is an elegant Chardonnay with the purity of fruit and balanced oak and lees details. Match with white fish and poultry over the next 3-5 years. Fermented in French puncheons with solids to 13.5% alc. Minimal MLF, aged on lees in puncheons for 10 months, 20% new oak. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Dec 2020 RRP $24.95
