Stone Bridge Gisborne Chardonnay 2012

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Gisborn
Review Date : 27-Mar-2014
Full, moderately deep, light golden yellow colour. The bouquet is full and broad with rich, savoury stonefruit and citrus fruit aromas, revealing layers of tropical fruits, creamy, buttery oak and toasted nut notes. Medium-full bodied, the palate is soft, broad open and mouthfilling with flavours of savoury tropical and citrus fruits well-integrated with nutty oak, buttery barrel-ferment and creamy MLF notes. This is up-front, and smooth-flowing, the palate underlined by lacy acidity leading to a very long, lingering, buttery finish. This is a full, broad and traditionally styled Chardonnay with creamy and buttery tropical fruit flavours. Serve with roast pork over the next 4 years. Clone 548 fruit fully barrel-fermented on solids to 13.2% alc., the wine aged 14 months in 75% French and 25% American oak, with 30% new French, and 25% MLF. 17.5/20 Mar 2014 RRP $25.00
