Description

  • Subtle oak
  • Stone fruit
  • Guava
  • Silky & creamy

"A nicely maturing Chardonnay; the fragrant bouquet shows grapefruit, apricot and baked apple characters with subtle notes of vanilla and dried herbs. It is succulent and rounded on the palate, delivering elegant weight and silky texture, well supported by bright acidity, finishing long and juicy" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, 2017

From this Maple Leaf Chardonnay you will experience stone fruit and guava notes, with a subtle oak influence and some creamy oatmeal-like characters. The palate offers juicy stone fruit and guava flavours, married to a lick of oak. Fine acid balance and some creamy textural qualities lead through a satisfying finish.

Fruit for Marble Leaf 2016 Chardonnay originates from a selection of Wairau Valley vineyards. 30% of the wine was fermented in French oak barriques to build some texture, the remainder being fermented in stainless steel to retain more fruit character. The barrel portion of wine underwent partial malolactic fermentation to soften the mouthfeel, with six months’ ageing on full ferment lees to enhance complexity.

Food Pairing: Ribbonwood Chardonnay is great to relax with on its own after a long day, but also makes a great partner to salmon and white fish. For something a little different, try matching with scallops, white meats or creamy pasta dishes.
