Ruru Chardonnay 2020, Central Otago

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 21-Sep-2021
Bright, moderate yellow-gold colour, lighter on the rim. The nose is softly full with richness, penetrating aromas of roasted almonds, toast, underlying citrus and clarified butter. Full-bodied, aromas of lemon curd, greengage plums enriched by toasty oak elements, showing roasted almonds, crusty baguette and cream. The mouthfeel is creamy and smooth, refreshed by a vibrant acid line and linger to a citrusy finish; subtle phenolic extractions added to the texture. This is a citrusy Chardonnay with flavours of citrus and stonefruit enriched by toasty oak elements. Match with creamy chicken pie and nut loaf over the next 3-5 years. fermented and aged in older oak barrels for 10 months, MLF. 13% alc, <2g/l RS. 18/20 pts (90 pts) Sept 2021 RRP $29
