Tohu Marlborough Chardonnay 2016

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 16-Oct-2017
Bright straw-yellow colour with light golden hues. The nose is fresh with aromas of white stonefruits and subtle nutty lees and mineral notes forming an elegantly concentrated core with good depth, revealing some lemon-curd MLF with aeration. This is pure and mouthwatering. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate rich, mouthfilling flavours of white and yellow stonefruits melded with a layer of lemon-curd and butterscotch MLF flavours unveiling notes of nutty lees and minerals. The palate has a rounded heart with fine textures and lacy acidity, and the wine flows with good energy and linearity, leading to a long finish of stonefruits, lemon-curd and nuts. This is a flavoursome unoaked Chardonnay with stonefruit, lemon-curd and butterscotch flavours on a rounded palate with good line and length. Match with seafood, poultry and pork over the next 3 years. An unoaked Chardonnay. Fruit from the ‘Rothay’ vineyard, Rapaura, fermented in stainless-steel to 13.0% alc. and dryness, the wine undergoing batonnage and 100% MLF. 17.5/20 Oct 2017 RRP $21.95
