Sorrell The Wrekin Chardonnay 2022, Marlborough

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 07-Dec-2023
Bright, even, pale straw yellow with some depth. The nose is elegantly lifted with aromas of roasted almond shavings, delicate spice, grapefruit pith, underlying stonefruit and citrus. Medium-bodied, aromas of peach and nectarine entwined with lemon, pink grapefruit pith and subtle spices. The fruit has concentration and flows harmoniously along an effortlessly creamy line; enlivening acidity carries good energy and length, closing on enticing, delicate layers. The Chardonnay is elegantly expressed with delicate layers and good energy. Match with crayfish and kingfish crudo over the next 6+ years. Handpicked, inoculated with yeast from The Wrekin vineyard, transferred to old French oak barrels, aged for 18 months, and underwent wild MLF. Unfined, unfiltered. 19+/20 pts (96 pts) Dec 2023 RRP $42
