Takapoto Estate Crossing Point Chardonnay 2021, Waikato

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Waikato
Review Date : 11-Jul-2023
Bright, even, pale yellow-gold. The nose is full and attractive with aromas of vanilla, smoke flint and toasty oak, underlying ripe citrus and stonefruit. Full-bodied, aromas of vanilla, toasted coconut, flint and spice, enriched nectarine, peach and Meyer lemon. The mouthfeel is creamy, lush and voluminous, reflecting toasty oak and MLF buttery elements. Balanced acidity and fine spice carry a sustained finish. Match with roasted pork and guinea fowl over the next 3-5 years. Handpicked, fermented to 13.5% alc, aged 12 months in French oak. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) July 2023 RRP $32.99
