2017 Te Awanga The Loom Reserve Chardonnay

Near perfect inaugural release from winemaking superstar Rod McDonald

Description

Rod McDonald is a master winemaker who makes award winning wines from the Hawke's Bay under his own brand as well as for other producers which makes this inaugural release of his reserve Chardonnay so exciting. Loom is local slang for the best wave of the day - aptly as it may just be the best wine of the day! Old vine Mendoza Chardonnay was fermented and aged in 100% French Oak (50% new) the result is a rich, concentrated powerful wine with very impressive length. Very limited production of only 250 dozen and FWD Co only has circa 50. So, be quick to get your hands on a bottle because the critics love it (2x 5-stars upon release) and the punters do too.

Smells

Ripe yellow-fleshed nectarine, sweet vanilla, candied nuts and subtle oak.

Tastes

Powerful, rich and complex with very impressive fruit concentration. The palate mirrors the aromatics with the concentration and balancing acidity suggesting that it can be aged 5-10 years. Grab 3 or 6 bottles today and enjoy over the next decade.
