Two Rivers Clos Des Pierres Chardonnay 2019, Marlborough

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 27-Jan-2021
Bright, light straw-yellow with some depth and a gold hue, slightly lighter edged. The nose is full, elegantly penetrating stonefruit nuances melded with a citrus backbone, stony minerals crunch, spices and flint. Medium-bodied, bright aromas of lemon sherbet, lemon curd, along with grapefruit, white peaches integrated with subtle flinty spice and pine nut, unveiling stony minerals drives a lingering finish. The electric acid drive provides good energy and freshness; subtle creaminess rounded out the mouthfeel to a smooth lemon curd texture. This is an elegant Chardonnay with a brilliant acid line and mineral drive. Match with pan-fried turbot and crayfish sashimi over the next 5+ years. Predominantly from 25 years old vines in Wairau & Southern Valley, Clones Mendoza, B95 and 15. Handpicked, whole bunch pressed, wild-fermented to 13% alc, aged 11 months in a 4,500L French oak cuve and a concrete egg tank. Full MLF, unfined, unfiltered. Vegan friendly. 19-/20 pts (95 pts) Jan 2021 RRP $30.99
