Monowai Upper Reaches Chardonnay 2019

Hawkes Bay, North Island, New ZealandFrom a vineyard in Crownthorpe, on the banks of the Ngarororu River, this was fermented and aged in new, 1, and 2 year old French oak, with full MLF. Quite perfumed, with white florals, musk melon, and medicinal kissed Rainier cherry, on a fuller, wider palate. This trails off with oak spicing on the shorter finish.Tasted: 02 January 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: NZ 35.00 New Zealand Producer: MonowaiGrape: Chardonnay
