2006 Chardonnay

2006 Chardonnay

Tasting Date: 23 March 2012

Still youthful with a restrained mineral nose and precise, flinty complexity. The palate charges forward with white peach and richer, broader tones; a sign of things to come. Charming and elegant with considerable potential.

Tasting Date: May 2007

Colour of pale straw. A nose of stonefruits, with lemon and a distinct mineral edge. The palate leads with nutty stonefruit, following with crisp acid and cleansing minerality. Very rich and mouth-coating, yet with a bracing clean finish and plenty of grip. The tension is evident despite the riper flavours than we normally see in this wine; certainly no sign of new world fatness. A wine with considerable ageing potential.

If we did it, it would be because it is a fashion and not because our heart is in it and that doesn’t feel right. So please email, or much better come and see us.
