A lean but clean Chard
Description: Straw in colour with a medium intense nose. This wine features light toasted oak, lemon, peach, pink grapefruit, pickled ginger, and chalk. Medium+ body with some tannin, good acidity and a long length.
Negatives: A touch over sour on the mouthfeel
Interesting Point: A significant drop from their 2013 vintage but still enjoyable. The 2013 and 2014 vintages are on the shelves, so look carefully in choosing the better vintage. Use the larger Chardonnay glassware.
Drink now or in the next 3 of years on its own or pair it with hardwood Smoked Trout.
