Second wine for our wine pairing at Chef's Table this evening, paired with a green pea soup with a truffle poached egg and bacon.

Light to medium yellow. Perfumey nose with tropical fruits and a bit clean. Medium acidity (5.5/10) and medium to medium plus bodied. Surprised this is unoaked. Layers of lemon curd and a creamy texture. Medium length finish. Drink till 2021.

Not great. Skip. Was better in the cement bottle. Too sweet and off putting. Not balanced.

Solid crisp Chardonnay. Great on a warm evening as a stand alone glass of wine.

I thought we liked this, but this time it was not great at all. 5/10 would not buy again.
