Pencarrow Chardonnay 2022, Martinborough

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 10-Nov-2023
Bright, even, pale yellow with a gold hue. The nose is gently full, with elegant aromas of stonefruit, citrus, roasted almond and spice. Medium-bodied, peach, apricot and lemon aromas entwined with spice, shortbread and subtle hints of almond. The creamy mouthfeel flows smoothly with forward ripe fruit and spice along a lively acid drive. Match with grilled calamari and hapuka over the next 3 years. Fermented in  French oak barrels with some lees stirring, aged 9 months in barrels. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Nov 2023 RRP $31
