FIVE STARS 18.5+/20 | Raymond Chan

Over the past 20 years Ant McKenzie has crafted fantastic wines for some of the biggest names in New Zealand wine - Dry River, Framingham, Mud House, Te Awa and Spy Valley. Now, under his own banner, he has created a multi-tier range of wines with Craft Farm pitched as "single site expressions that showcase the essence of place."

This wonderful 2015 Chardonnay comes off the McKenzie's home block. It's a modern style with some reductive aromatic elements and plenty of palate drive. Very cellar worthy.

Description
FIVE STARS Raymond Chan "Even, light golden-hued yellow colour with green on the edge. This has a full, broad and powerfully concentrated nose with layers of white and yellow stonefruits entwined with complex, flinty, reductive elements and smoky oak. The aromas grow in depth and richness unfolding nutty and citrus notes. Medium-bodied and finely proportioned, the palate has a deep and well-packed core of white and yellow stonefruits and citrus fruits melded with fine, flinty lees and reductive detail. This has a subtle richness and lusciousness. The mouthfeel is refined and balanced with integrated acidity lending energy and vitality, revealing nutty and smoky oak layers. The wine follows the firm core and line to a lingering finish with refined, dry phenolic textures and stonefruit and flinty nuances. This is a complex, concentrated Chardonnay with stonefruit and flinty complexities and a deep core and line. Match with seafood, poultry, pork and veal over the next 4-5 years. Clone 15 and 809 fruit from the ‘Craft Farm’ vineyard, hand-picked and WBP, and indigenous yeast barrel-fermented to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 9 months on lees in 30% new French oak with 100% MLF. 18.5+/20 ."
