Te Pa Reserve Auntsfield Vineyard Chardonnay 2022, Marlborough

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 18-Feb-2024
Bright, even, pale yellow. The nose is elegantly presented, with aromas of flinty minerals, citrus, stonefruit and delicate spice. Medium-full bodied, aromas of lemon and grapefruit entwined with peach, unfolding delicate spice, zest, wet stone, flint and subtle notes of buttery details. The acidity is crisp and refreshing and persists with zest through the stony mineral-textured mouthfeel. This Chardonnay has a distinctive, elegant mineral flow, a citrus core enriched by flint and a buttery layer. Match with banana prawns and butterfish over the next 5-7 years. Fruit from Auntsfield vineyard in the Southern Valleys, handpicked, whole bunch pressed, fermented with high solids in barrels. 12 barrel selection, 33% new oak. Unfined, unfiltered. 19/20 pts (95pts) Feb 2024 RRP $34.95
