This unoaked Chardonnay could be described as “all fruit” if it weren't for the minerals. Apples and apricots on the nose battle for attention with the smell of a wet driveway. Big fruit on the palate is met with crisp acidity, and the whole thing finishes long and clean.

Brilliant light yellow. Fresh nose with white peach, lemon and minerality. Lean and mineral, with high acidity that tends to hide the fruit, tastes a bit like a simple Chablis. Overpriced. 2015 vintage. Abv 13,5%. 31 euro.

Unoaked. Uncle Hank likes a little more oakiness. We will give it an 8.7.

Pale straw yellow, medium bodied, Granny Smith apples, pineapple, melon and a hint of ginger. Delicious with a tart finish.
