Pineapple, olive oil, Marcona almonds. Toasty. Tasty. Although, the ‘17 already seemed aged.

This was in the Wines of South Africa semi-final blind tasting lineup, and I could not believe it was a 2013. Pure, crystalline and mineral-driven happiness.

A very fine Chardonnay. Good depth of flavour and energy. Has good approchability. A style in the same vein than a Chassagne/Meursault as it has a structured aspect which is not dissimilar to Gagnard/Arnaud Ente in style. Very good discovery here!

Good definition here but miles away to be ready despite to have been left opened for few hours. Wood is not fully digested.
