Rapaura Springs Reserve Chardonnay 2022, Marlborough

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 13-Mar-2023
Bright, even, pale yellow. The nose is elegantly full, with aromas of stonefruit, apple, underlined flint, minerals and nutty elements. Medium-full bodied, aromas of peach and nectarine melded with toffee apple, unfolding minerals, cashew butter and spice. The mouthfeel is gently creamy, well-balanced by lively acidity. Delicate spice adds interest and power to an elegant finish. This Chardonnay shows a stonefruit core, spice and sleek oak interest and a fine acid line. Match with chicken ballotine and pan-fried blue cod over the next 3-4 years. Fermented with 25% new oak, partial MLF, 13% alc. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Mar 2023 RRP $19.99
