Expert review

A pristine and elegant Chardonnay with a nose of chamomile, pear, zesty citrus, nectarine, oyster shell and fresh almond, deepened by hints of flint. In the mouth it's precise and finely detailed with flavours that echo the nose and travels with minerality and a focused line of acidity. Beautiful. Take your time with this one and watch it bloom.

Wine Worth Writing About

The Grape

Chardonnay

One of the most planted, versatile and popular white varieties in the world. As a stand alone grape, Chardonnay is not the most interesting, nor complex varietal out there...but in the hands of a great winemaker it can be turned into one of the world's greatest pleasures! From the best bubbles of Champagne, to the lean, unoaked and mineral expressions of Chablis and the opulent, oaked and complex whites of Burgundy, Chardonnay is responsible for making some of the greatest expressions of white wine on the planet.
