18+/20 Raymond Chan
Bright straw-yellow colour with lemon-green hues, lighter edged. This has a fresh, tightly bound and finely presented nose with intense and concentrated aromas of savoury citrus fruit and stonefruits entwined with complexing fragrant and spicy oak and nutty elements. Medium-bodied, the palate is refined and tightly held with a firm core of savoury citrus fruit melded with yellow stonefruits, nuts, spicy and toasty oak. The mouthfeel is bright, lively and refreshing with lacy acidity cutting and balancing the creamy barrel-ferment textures. The wine flows along a fine, smooth line leading to a lingering savoury citrus fruited and nutty finish. This is an elegant and refined Chardonnay with savoury citrus fruit and nutty oak, and a fresh, bright palate. Match with seafood, poultry and pork over the next 4-5 years. Clones 15, 95 and Mendoza, fully barrel-fermented to 14.0% alc., partially with indigenous yeasts, the wine aged 10 months in 25% new French oak, undergoing batonnage and 50% MLF.
