SOHO ‘Jonny’ Marlborough Chardonnay 2017

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 11-Oct-2018
Bright, pale golden-hued yellow colour, a little lighter edged. The nose is elegantly presented with an elegant core of yellow stonefruits and citrus fruit entwined with subtle creamy barrel-ferment and nutty oak notes, along with a layering of lemon-curd MLF. This has freshness and vibrancy. Medium-bodied, the palate has a rich, deep and firm-hearted, but rounded core of yellow stonefruits, citrus fruits, hints of complexing mealiness, allied to creamy and nutty oak with lemon-curd and buttery MLF. The fruit is enlivened by fresh, lacy acidity and the wine flows along a light-textured line with balanced acidity providing freshness and cut, leading to a buttery-flavoured finish. This is a fresh, deeply flavoured Chardonnay with stonefruit, citrus fruit, nutty oak and lemon-curd like MLF. Serve with grilled and roasted seafood over the next 3+ years. Marlborough fruit fully barrel-fermented to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 10 months on lees with batonnage in 20% new oak and 100% MLF. 17.5/20 Oct 2018 RRP On-Premise only
