The Boneline ‘Barebone’ Waipara Chardonnay 2016

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 28-Jun-2017
Bright, light straw-yellow colour with pale green hues. The nose is very fresh, elegant and tightly bound with aromas of white stonefruits, white florals, some mineral notes and nutty suggestions, along with hints of saline. This is pure and refreshing. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate is crisp and zesty with tight and finely concentrated white stonefruit flavours along with white florals, minerals and saline nuances. The mouthfeel is slippery and seamless with crisp acidity providing energy and finesse. The wine follows a light-textured phenolic line leading to a subtly flavoured, thirst-quenching, minerally finish. This is a fresh, taut, un-oaked Chardonnay with white stonefruit, mineral and stonefruit flavours on a slippery, crisp, fine-textured palate. Match with shellfish and seafood over the next 3-4 years. UCD Champagne and Mendoza clone fruit from ‘Block 4’ Glasnevin Gravels, vines 20-25 y.o., fermented in tank to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 10 months on lees with batonnage and no MLF, with no oak contact. 17.5/20 Jun 2017 RRP $20.00
