Selaks ‘The Taste Collection’ ‘Buttery’ Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay 2016

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 15-May-2017
Full, light golden-hued yellow colour, paler edged. The nose is softly full and voluminous with aromas of ripe yellow stonefruits and tropical fruits melded with creamy barrel-ferment and nutty oak notes, layered with integrated butterscotch elements. Medium-bodied, the plate has vibrantly rich flavours of yellow stonefruits and tropical fruits harmoniously entwined with layers of creamy barrel-ferment and nutty oak with lemon-curd and buttery MLF notes. The fruit sweetness is balanced by crisp, lacy acidity, and the wine flows with good energy along a soft-textured line, leading to a lingering finish of stonefruits, nuts and butter. This is a rich, creamy, stonefruit and tropical fruit flavoured Chardonnay with nutty and buttery notes on a fresh palate. Match with roast poultry and pork dishes over the next 3-4 years. Hawke’s Bay fruit, 70% barrel-fermented and aged in 30% new French oak barriques, blended with 30% tank-fermented fruit to 13.0% alc. 17.5/20 May 2017 RRP $21.99
