Gorgeous Chardonnay from this boutique producer. Whilst this wine has pure, flint and mineral Chablis-esque characters, the palate has some richness and weight and it is certainly rounder in the mouth than the great Chablis wines it pays homage to. It finishes with a deliciously acidic hit that makes a second glass impossible to refuse.
The winery writes "Silver and green flashes on sun goldened newspaper. This wine meets you with alluringly sweet white florals, quickly followed by frying butter and stone fruit. Its personality runs deep with toasty oak and creamy yeast combining with the fruit to produce a myriad of pastry dessert inspired descriptors. Although the entry to the palate is soft and creamy this give a false sense of what is to come as it builds quickly adding elements of zesty lemon, wood smoke, grapefruit pith and rock salt in a smack around the chops finish. A wine that demands your attention, made by Chardonnay geeks."
Glad we stumbled across this one. Delicious!
