Tony Bish Skeetfield Chardonnay 2016

"Bright straw-yellow colour with light golden hues, paler on edge.  The nose is rich and full with well-concentrated and deeply packed aromas of ripe yellow stonefruit and citrus fruit complexed by an amalgam of mealy and nutty oak, creamy barrel-ferment elements, oxidative detail, unfolding some lemon-curd and buttery MLF elements.  The nose retains a fresh minerally edge.  Medium-full bodied, the palate is richly packed with concentrated and layered flavours of ripe yellow stonefruits melded with flavours of creamy barrel-ferment and nutty lees and oak elements, and lemon-curd MLF and subtle oxidative complexities.  The palate is multi-dimensional, revealing complex detail as it flows.  This has an underlying power with fine, lacy acidity providing energy and tension.  The flavours flow along a very fine-textured line, leading to a very long and sustained, deeply concentrated and complex-flavoured finish.  This is a complex, multi-dimensional, layered Chardonnay with stonefruit, mealy, nutty lees and oak flavours along with barrel-ferment and MLF richness on a fine-textured, fresh and youthful palate.  It will develop well over the next 5+ years.  Match with roasted and grilled white meat dishes.  Hand-picked Mendoza clone fruit from the 'Skeetfield' vineyard, Ohiti, fully barrel fermented by indigenous yeasts with high solids to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 12 months on lees in 60% new Taransaud French oak with 100% MLF."
