Te Pa Chardonnay 2021, Marlborough

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 10-Jun-2022
Bright, even, yellow with a green sheen. The nose is full and expressive, with aromas of citrus, stonefruit intertwined oat, roasted almond, baked bread and spice. Full-bodied, a concentrated palate shows citrus and nectarine melded with melted butter, roasted almond, baguette crust and delicate spice. The flavours are well-portioned with depth and width, supported by lively acidity, and fine-textured phenolics added mouthfeel and substance. This Chardonnay has generous and concentrated flavours with nutty and creamy complexity and bright acidity on a fine-textured palate. Match with roasted chicken and baked fish over the next 5 years. 100% Clone 15 Chardonnay from Cowley Family Vineyard, handpicked, whole bunch pressed to barrels with 30% new oak, fermented to 14% alc, left on lees and underwent spring MLF. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) June 2022 $24.99
