Rossendale Estate Marlborough Chardonnay 2018
- This is a crisp and racy Chardonnay with citrus and tropical fruit along with spicy, toast oak and hints of butterscotch.The nose is elegantly concentrated, showing citrus fruit and yellow stonefruit aromas along with creamy, nutty barrel-ferment and oak notes entwined with lemon curd and toasty oak elements. Bright straw-yellow colour with green-gold hues, a little lighter on the edge.
- The nose is fresh and upfront with aromas of citrus and tropical fruits, along with nutty and spicy oak notes, along with toasty elements and buttery malolactic fermentation.
- Flavours of spicy and nutty oak, toast and creamy, buttery MLF elements add interest. The flavours carry easily, enhanced by the acidity, leading to a zesty, lingering finish of citrus fruit and oak spice". Raymond Chan Wine Reviews, 2017.
