Squawking Magpie ‘The Chatterer’ Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay 2015

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 20-Mar-2016
Bright, light straw-yellow colour with lemon-green hues. The nose is fresh, bright and tightly bound with clear aromas of white and yellow stonefruits along with mouthwatering steely and minerally elements and nutty nuances at the core, unfolding lemon-curd MLF notes. Medium-bodied, the palate is crisp and refreshing with tightly bound flavours of white stonefruits entwined with nutty oak, lemon-curd MLF, and nuances of butterscotch and toast. The wine follows a fine-textured, dry phenolic line enlivened by thirst-quenching lacy acidity. The flavours show clarity and carry to a lingering finish of minerals and toast. This is a fresh and crisp Chardonnay with flavours of stonefruits, minerals, nuts and toast, underlined by lemon-curd MLF and fine, dry textures. Match with grilled seafood and poultry over the next 3+ years. A single vineyard wine, clones 15 and 95, fermented in tank to 14.0% alc., the wine aged in 1 and 2 y.o. oak. 17.0+/20 Mar 2016 RRP $19.95
