Tiki ‘Koro’ Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay 2015

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 13-Dec-2017
Bright, light golden-yellow colour with good depth, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is softly packed with deep and harmoniously melded aromas of ripe yellow stonefruits and tropical fruits, along with creamy barrel-ferment and nutty oak, unfolding savoury stonefruit pith notes. Medium-full bodied, the palate is softly rich and deeply concentrated with opulent and harmoniously integrated flavours of ripe tropical fruits, creamy and nutty oak, and layers of butterscotch MLF. The palate is luscious and smooth flowing, with soft acidity adding to the roundness. The wine carries to a gentle, rich finish. This is a fully mature, softly rich, opulent and mouthfilling Chardonnay with harmoniously integrated flavours of tropical fruits, creamy and nutty oak. Match with roast pork over the next 3 years. Hand-picked Mendoza clone fruit WBP and fully barrel-fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 11 months on lees in 70% new French oak barriques with batonnage and 100% MLF. 18.0+/20 Dec 2017 RRP $33.00
