Rapaura Springs Reserve Chardonnay 2019, Marlborough

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 28-Jan-2021
Bright, light straw-yellow with some depth, slightly lighter edged. The nose is gently full; the glass is filled with stonefruit nuances and citrus accompanied by oak spices, almonds and a hint of creaminess. Full-bodied, peaches, nectarines and lemon peels have a concentrated core, enriched by toasted almonds, whipped butter and subtle spices. The flavours are rich; lacy acidity provides a lively palate and drive, carry flavours along with a rounded, creamy mouthfeel. This is a rich, concentrated, stonefruit-flavoured Chardonnay with toasty barrel details on a creamy mouthfeel. Match with roasted chicken and veal parmigiana over the next 4 years. 13.5% alc. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Jan 2021 RRP $18.99
