Some of you may know this wine from when we featured it last year. This is Squawking Magpie's premium Chardonnay and we have the last stocks at the same fantastic 'deal' price. At 3 years, this has developed into a mellow, gentle, integrated wine that is really elegant and as Sam Kim describes .. "soothing and comforting" – just what we all need at the moment!
Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"The 2017 single vineyard, barrel fermented Chardonnay offers sophisticated soft wine with restrained flavours of grapefruit, melon and a subtle blend of nut, spicy oak and lees characters. Barrel fermented and Barrel aged in new and older French oak add complexity and texture."
5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, February 2019 (2017 Vintage)
"This is immediately appealing on the nose showing ripe stone fruit, rockmelon, nougat, vanilla and roasted hazelnut characters. The palate is concentrated and wonderfully weighted, delivering rich texture and creamy mouthfeel, backed by elegantly pitched acidity. Soothing and comforting with loads of tasty flavours. At its best: now to 2021."
