Rossendale Marlborough Chardonnay 2015

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 20-Jul-2016
Bright, light golden-yellow colour with some depth, lighter on the rim. The nose is elegantly concentrated and a little reserved in expression, showing citrus fruit and yellow stonefruit aromas along with creamy, nutty barrel-ferment and oak notes entwined with lemon-curd MLF and toasty oak elements. Medium-bodied and slender in proportion, the palate possesses an elegantly concentrated core of citrus and stonefruits along with creamy, nutty oak and buttery MLF nuances. The wine is refreshingly crisp with underlying mouthwatering acidity providing balance to the fruit and oak softness. The wine leads to a moderately sustained finish of citrus fruits, nutty and toasty oak and creamy nuances. This is a fresh and crisp Chardonnay with citrus, cream and buttery flavours. Serve with seafood, poultry and pork over the next 3 years. Marlborough fruit fully barrel-fermented to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 12 months in 8% new oak, undergoing batonnage and 70% MLF. 17.0/20 Jul 2016 RRP $16.00
