Babich Mara Estate Chardonnay

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (1998 Vintage) says
Mara Estate has typically rested its case on ripe, citrusy fruit, subtly oaked, with strong drink-young appeal. Grown at Fernhill in Hawke's Bay (where the soils are heavier and more fertile than at Irongate), it is fully fermented and lees-aged in French oak barriques (20 to 25 per cent new). The 1997 is a citrusy, savoury wine with an elegant, buttery fragrance and considerable complexity. The 1998 is weighty, fragrant and harmonious, with satisfying depth of fresh citrus and melon-like flavours and a creamy-smooth finish. It's a skilfully made wine, already delicious.

Light to medium yellow-green; a clean bouquet of medium intensity with cashew nut malolactic-fermentation characters on moderately subdued fruit. The palate has much more style and fruit, with melon, citrus and cashew flavours on a long, ever so slightly edgy, finish.
