Summerhouse Chardonnay 2019, Marlborough

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 28-Jan-2021
Bright, pale straw-yellow with some depth and a green hue, lighter on edge. The nose is soft with an elegant scent of stonefruit citrus intermix a light note of vanilla cream and a hint of almond. Medium-full bodied, more expressive on the palate, peaches and nectarines along with a little grapefruit interweave almond biscuit, vanilla cream. An elegant, fine-textured phenolic line added to the mouthfeel, linger with nutty nuances to a sustained, satisfying finish. Match with baked chicken pie and quiche lorraine over the next 3 years. Fruit from Southern Valley, fermented in a mix of stainless steel and 35% in old French barrels to 13.5% alc, partial MLF. 18+/20 pts (91 pts) Jan 2021 RRP $18.99
