Te Kano Chardonnay 2018, Central Otago

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 10-Jul-2020
Bright, even, medium yellow with depth and a golden hue. The nose is gently full with aromas of apricots, peaches and citrus, along with the richness of toasty oak, baking spices and shortbread. Medium-full bodied, with flavours of stonefruit, citrus; entwined with butterscotch, shortbread, toasty oak and subtle ginger. The flavours are voluminous with good concentration; ripened fruit aromas and lively acidity balanced by clever use of oak added body, spices and richness; lingers to a sustained dry finish. This is a harmonious, rich flavoured Chardonnay carries ripened fruit aromas, butterscotch richness with balanced, lively acidity, enlivened by oak spices and toastiness. Match with roasted chicken and pork terrine over the next 3-5 years. 100% Mendoza clone Chardonnay from Jerome Vineyard. Handpicked, whole bunch pressed, fermented in French oak barrels to 14% alc, further aged in barrels for 10 months. Partial MLF. 18.5/20 pt July 2020 RRP $35
