What a wonderful Chardonnay. White peach and grapefruit, oatmeal and struck match, tight tracks of gleaming acidity, and a bullet of juicy refrained flavour racing down them. A little flintiness. Some cashew creaminess. A tight and mouth-watering limey finish that makes you eye the level of the glass too often, and fret over it. You’d be mad not too.
Once this organically grown wine is under your nostrils, you’ll be hooked. Scents of citrus flower and gunflint lead the way to a soft-textured mouthful, with lemon, stonefruit and a touch of brine. The finish is dry and lengthy. A polished performer.
