Bellarmine Chardonnay 2019

“A young, clean, linear and balanced wine. It’s initially restrained on the nose, then opens up. Characters of stone fruit and melon. Oak is integrating. A slightly ‘tighter’ Chablis style. Easy to drink now, will evolve over three years. Nice wine.” – Dr Craig Drummond, Master of Wine

TASTING NOTES

A lightly oaked style with subtle creamy mouthfeel from stirring on yeast lees and partial malo-lactic fermentation. It is complex yet elegant.

Exhibiting nectarine and green apple flavours, the palate is long and persistent with the slight spice of the French oak giving a delicious backbone.
