Whitehaven Chardonnay 2022, Marlborough

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 11-Aug-2023
Bright, even, pale straw-yellow. The nose is full, with complex aromas of struck-match, roasted nuts, underlined citrus and stonefruit. Medium-full bodied, aromas of smoky flint, roasted nuts enlivened by apricot and lemon sherbet. The flavours are rich, with fine-textured phenolics and crisp acidity unfolding subtle spices. This amiable Chardonnay possesses crunchy acidity, bright fruit enriched by toasty oak elements. Match with creamy pasta and chicken dish over the next 3 years. Fermented to 13.5% alc, matured in French oak. Vegan friendly. 18+/20 pts (91 pts) Aug 2023 RRP $28
