Spring Creek Estate Marlborough Unoaked Chardonnay 2016

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 07-Mar-2017
Brilliant straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, lighter on the rim. The nose is very fresh and clean with up-front, uncomplicated aromas of white and yellow stonefruits expressed with a steely freshness, revealing subtle nuances of fresh herbs and minerals. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has up-front, straightforward flavours of white and yellow stonefruits along with notes of apples, fresh herbs, white florals and minerals. The palate is fresh and lively, with some phenolic textures providing a guiding line. The wine carries to a light, lingering finish with nuances of stonefruits and apples. This is an up-front, uncomplicated un-oaked Chardonnay with flavours of stonefruits, apples and herbs, on a refreshing palate with some grip. Serve as an aperitif, with seafood and poultry over the next 2+ years. Wairau Valley fruit fermented in tank to 13.0% alc. and dryness, the wine bottled without oak contact and no MLF. 16.5/20 Mar 2017 RRP $15.99
