Parterre Chardonnay 2020
Tight and flinty, richer than the 2019. Sweet lime and a touch of nougat. The texture is gently chalky and the finish has lenght and crunch.
This has a vividly fresh lemon and yellow-peach nose with wet stones, flint and hazelnuts. Shows intensity and freshness in the mouth with staunch acidity driving ripe peach, pineapple and green-mango flavors. Mouthwateringly intense finish. Drink over the next five years. Screw cap.

Aromas of white stone fruit, grapefruit pith, melon skin, nuts, nougat, white flowers and creamy, classy oak. The flavours are mid-weighted, focused, textured, layered and long. Nectarine, grapefruit, mealy, crunchy minerally acidity, fresh and lively. Tightly bound and a little linear at the moment, will blossom with time.
