Soho Fleetwood Chardonnay 2020, Marlborough

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 30-Mar-2021
Brilliant, pale yellow-gold with some depth, even colour throughout. The nose is welcoming, greeted with nuances of ripe stonefruit, custard, toasted almonds and subtle flint. Medium-bodied, stonefruit entwined with nashi pear crispness, along with delicate spice, toasted almonds and custard lingers with a hint of citrus zest. The mouthfeel is smooth-flowing with a sense of crunch and chalky mineral, poised in structure. Flavours are just ripe with a good amount of freshness; well-proportioned and elegant use of oak adorn the wine with richness and weight. This is an elegantly crafted Chardonnay with the purity of fruit and poised structure of richness. Match with salmon and kingfish over the next 5 years. Handpicked fruit from Carter's Jomara Vineyard in the Southern Valleys, whole bunch pressed, wild-fermented to 12% alc, 25% new oak used. Organic certified, vegan friendly. 18.5/20 (93 pts) March 2021 RRP $38
