Postage Stamp Wines Ariki Chardonnay 2018, Waiheke Island

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Northland & Auckland
Review Date : 03-Aug-2021
Bright, pale straw yellow with some depth, slightly lighter on the rim. The nose is gently full and slowly opening up to salted almonds, sourdough, interweave citrus and melon. Medium-full bodied, aromas of melon, melded with citrus zest, roasted nuts and savoury lees. The mouthfeel is zesty with textured phenolics; citrus oil lingers with its aromatics. Lively acidity provides a smooth flow, along with a creamy line. Match this with pan-fried snapper and chicken Maryland over the next 4 years. Fermented to 13% alc. 18-/20 pts (89 pts) Aug 2021 RRP $37.95
