Ruru Chardonnay 2019, Central Otago

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 14-Aug-2020
Bright, medium straw-yellow, even throughout. The nose is vibrant and lively with citrus notes of lemon, grapefruit, passionfruit curd, melded with a faint note of struck match, barrel spices. Medium-bodied, soft notes of lemon, grapefruit with a subtle tone of its pith, curd, MLF creaminess and oak spice detail. The wine is lively with mainly citrus fruit characters and a tropical fruit undertone. Vibrant acidity balanced by the use of oak and creamy MLF detail and a subtle toasty undertone of barrel fermentation, harmoniously integrated. This is a harmonious Chardonnay with flavours of citrus, creamy palate, toasty and spicy oak details. Match with chicken nibbles and battered blue cod over the next 2-4 years. 18-/20 pts Aug 2020 RRP $24
