Tasting Notes

This is our first carbonic Chardonnay. I will be honest; I was giddy with excitement when I tried this from barrel halfway through its maturation. I am a fan of wines that have a specific aroma of struck match, or some call “reductive” (I’ll argue it’s from excess sulphur during fermentation).

 

This Chardonnay will not disappoint. It has just the right amount of oak to balance that smokiness and the concentration of fruit from a good vintage, not to mention the resulting intense fruit aromas from carbonic fermentation. Ripe yellow pear, fresh pineapple, and tangerine all take turns in your nose, with a slight baking spice and pie crust envelope that tries to keep the fruit and match bomb contained.

 

The palate is full, concentrated, balanced and long. It is dry, but has a ripeness that balances the fresh acidity, and I can’t find a single imperfection. This is delicious. I will be drinking this on its own, or with my favourite dish: crab legs dipped in butter
