Spectacular acidity that only a 2011 vintage in Green Valley could produce. Bright yellow and orange fruit with a satisfyingly viscous finish thanks to a unique stainless steel fermentation with full ML . 3 + years of cellaring left.

I picked this up because we used to serve it at a restaurant I worked at, and I had fond memories of it. Tasting it 8 years later it doesn’t remind me at all of that wine which might be because A) it was a different wine (although it was a twist off unoaked Chardonnay) B) my palate has changed or C) just a difference in vintage. While I remember it being quite buttery, and with strong tropical notes of pineapple and lychee, this wine is more reductive and acidic, with stewed apple or pear.

(16.5/20) Свежий и элегантный аромат белых яблок, желтой сливы и цветов. Тельное с умеренной кислотностью. Лёгкая горчинка во вкусе. Приятное. #prowein2017
