We're proud to be the only merchant in the UK with this wine, which we imported after being so impressed with it at a wine dinner we hosted with Matt Gant, the winemaker. This is New World Chardonnay at its best with specially selected hand picked grapes from a top site in the Adelaide Hills. The wine is barrel fermented using wild yeasts, aged in hogshead barrels for 6 months and then bottled. The result is a classy take on Burgundy - lots of fresh citrus fruit with subtle orange and lemon peel notes, soft creamy oak, a mineral edge and firm acidity. The balance is perfect and the length of flavour is huge. Another top wine from the First Drop guys - bonnet de douche, as they say (read the back label and this will make sense).
SC Rating - OUTSTANDING (Mike)
