Wooing Tree Central Otago Chardonnay 2016

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 16-Aug-2017
Brilliant straw-yellow colour with pale gold hues, lighter on the edge. The nose is moderately full and well-concentrated with aromas of white peaches and citrus fruits entwined with nutty, flinty and mineral notes, along with creamy barrel-ferment and MLF nuances. Marzipan and toasty oak elements unfold in the glass. Medium-bodied, the palate is rich and lively with a concentrated core of white peaches and citrus fruits, melded with nutty oak and creamy barrel-ferment and MLF layers, unfolding some toastiness. The mouthfeel features fresh acidity and the wine flows along a light-textured line, carrying a little grip, leading to a lingering nutty and toasty finish. This is a moderately concentrated and well-flavoured Chardonnay with peachy fruit, creamy and butty notes and toasty oak on a palate with light grip. Match with roasted poultry and pork over the next 4 years. Hand-picked clone 95 fruit from the ‘Wooing Tree; vineyard, full barrel-fermented to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 8 months in 30% new oak, undergoing batonnage and MLF. 17.5+/20 Aug 2017 RRP $38.00
