Chardonnay is one of the world’s most popular grape varieties; originally from France’s Burgundy region, today it is planted almost anywhere that wine is produced. Chardonnay has a relatively neutral flavour profile, which allows winemakers to use a variety of skills and techniques to create a wide range of styles from taut and linear to rich and buttery.
“Medium bodied, creamy cashew and juicy white fruits, flinty struck match complexity, and a red grapefruit and toasty finish of good length. Ready to go now, I’d say.” Gary Walsh

On the nose, it is rich and ripe, firstly full of flowers then going on to reveal its fruity aromas with sweet, suave notes. The taste is very powerful, wtih a pronounced minerally character that enhances the fruit and fine vegetal flavours. Its mellowness harmonizes perfectly with its vivacity on a solid structure that illustrates perfectly the special nature of the wine.

The village of Chablis in Burgundy is a mecca for Chardonnay lovers. Emulated the world over, Chablis is rarely bettered for its tension and minerality. This is a great example, balancing some fullness on the palate with taut acidity. Will sing with freshly shucked oysters.
