2019 ‘Royals’ Chardonnay

95 Points, Gold Medal – James Halliday
93 Points – Mike Bennie

Composition
100% Chardonnay

Tasting Note
Lifted notes of honeycomb, praline salted caramel and elderflower, with just a hint of white peach.A juicy full palate bursting with fruit and an amazing acid line to carry it all across the entire palate.

You will want to go back for that second glass!

The chardonnay grapes were hand picked and sorted before being whole-bunch pressed and barrel fermented in 50% new French oak. This vintage was 100% wild yeast fermented adding to the wines mouth-feel and giving great complexity and texture. The chardonnay underwent 30% wild malolactic fermentation. Maturation in French oak for 12 months.

93 Points Mike Bennie

“This wine has some power and concentration behind it but manages to feel very fresh and almost thirst quenching.

Expect ripe stone fruits, ripe citrus, some cloudy apple juice notes and then some creamy vanilla and light buttery characters. That being said, it is inherently bright and generally just super delicious to drink. Real nice expression.”
