Wooing Tree Chardonnay 2018, Central Otago

Chardonnay from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 25-Jun-2021
Bright, straw-yellow with a slight green hue, slightly lighter on the rim. The nose is elegantly full, filled the glass with roasted almonds, barrel spice and creaminess with a stonefruit core. Full-bodied, aromas of stonefruit melded with grapefruit and citrus zest, enriched by roasted almonds, toast, whipped butter, and a subtle toffee linger on the finish. This wine has body; ripe fruit complement the toasty barrel details, barrel spice elevate to a rich finish. Match with roasted chicken and carbonara over the next 3-4 years. Clone 95, barrel-fermented to 14.5% alc, aged in 100% French oak for 10 months, 35% new oak. MLF occurred. Vegan friendly. 18/20 pts (90 pts) June 2021 RRP $38
