Domaine Road Defiance Chardonnay

2018 — Central Otago, New Zealand
Add to favourites

This Chardonnay is dry in style, and pale straw with clear hues in colour. The nose has fragrant aromas of apple blossom, pear, apricot, citrus and vanilla. Rich and mouth filling with juicy stone fruit, ripe pears, lemon zest, brioche and biscotti on the palate. The texture is creamy and mouth filling. A complex wine with appealing minerality and a long finish.

The grapes were hand harvested and are whole bunch pressed to tank before being transferred to French oak barriques to undergo barrel fermentation. Aged in French oak barriques (32% new oak) for 10 months the wine was regularly leased stirred with 50% completing malolactic fermentation.

We think this is as good as it gets from Central Otago Chardonnay, an absolute delight!
