Spencer Hill Estate Latitude 41 Moutere Chardonnay 2020, Nelson

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 27-Aug-2021
Bright, light straw-yellow, slightly lighter on the rim. Softly full on the bouquet, aromas of lemon sherbet, melon, unfolding subtle barrel spices and creamy lees. Full-bodied, mouth-filling aromas of melon, melded with lemon sherbet, stonefruit, enrich by buttermilk, spiced almonds. The fruit is bright and upfront, very approachable. Creamy lees element is round and smooth; contrasting lively acidity flow parallel with creaminess to a sustained finish. Match this with cheese souffle and grilled king prawns over the next 4-5 years. Free-run juice, cold settled, racked with selected solids to French and American oak for fermentation, 13.5% alc, 30% new oak. Aged 6 months on gross less and regular battonage, inoculated MLF in spring. 18+/20 pts (91 pts) Aug 2021 RRP $24
