Paddy Borthwick Chardonnay 2023, Wairarapa

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 29-Feb-2024
Bright, even, pale straw yellow. The nose is full, with aromas of citrus, stonefruit, creamy elements, vanilla and spice. Medium-full bodied, aromas of lemon melded with apricot, grapefruit, citrus peels and spices. The fruit is forward and vibrant, supported by tangy acidity, along with a fine-textured palate adorned by subtle creaminess, lending a spiced, moreish finish. This Chardonnay is appealing with bright fruit and acidity on a balanced, fine-textured mouthfeel. Match with monkfish and pork chops over the next 3 years. Fermented to 13% alc. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Feb 2024 RRP $26
