WhaleBone Bay Marlborough Chardonnay 2011

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 01-May-2012
100% Marlborough fermented partially in oak to 13.5% alc., and a portion undergoing MLF. Brilliant pale straw-yellow colour with green hues, pale on edge. The nose is fresh, clean and tight with citrus and white stonefruit aromas, revealing some flint and mineral notes of interest. Medium-bodied, light citrus fruit flavours with a steely edge show on a well-balanced, lively palate. The wine is softly textured with some creaminess and hints of butterscotch. The flavours are carried to a crisp, sustained finish with subtle buttery nuances. This is a well-made, elegant Chardonnay with freshness and appealing creamy hints to match with seafood and poultry over the next 3+ years. 16.0+/20 Apr 2012 RRP $18.99
