Rapaura Springs Reserve Chardonnay 2021, Marlborough

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 23-Sep-2022
Bright, even, pale yellow. The nose is softly full, slowly penetrating aromas of stonefruit melded with apple and pear, roasted nut, tahini and a hint of spice. Medium-full bodied, peach, apple and pear aromas enriched by roasted almond, tahini, toasted brioche and subtle oak spice. The fruit is fresh and shows purity, supported by lively acidity. Well-proportioned barrel elements add complexity and a textural mouthfeel. This elegant Chardonnay is well-made with balanced acidity and complexity, ready to be consumed. Match with grilled swordfish and pork chop over the next 3-4 years. Fermented in French oak to 13.5% alc. 18.5-/20 pts (92 pts) Sep 2022 RRP $19.99
