Lawson's Dry Hills Marlborough Chardonnay 2007
Winemaker: Marcus Wright / Dean Boyce.
Alcohol: 14.5% pH: 3.36 RS: 2.0g/L
TA: 7.0g/L Brix: 24
The wine was fermented in French oak barriques and aged for nine months in barrel. The wine was allowed to under go only partial malolactic fermentation in order to retain acidity that hightlights the wines mineral texture. Citrus, white peach and toasty oak characters combine on the palate to produce a wine that has wonderful depth, length and conplexity.
This wine will age nicely through to 2011, developing toasty aged characters and added complexity.
Moroccan chicken with chickpeas and fresh coriander.
