Ochota Barrels The Slint Vineyard Chardonnay 2017

I was generously gifted this Chardonnay - my mate Richard knows I'm a Chardy fan and he knows his wine. It's Richard's birthday today too - happy birthday mate! He hit the mark here. What a beauty! The bottle didn't last long either, need I say more?

It has a cider like appearance in the glass. Cashew and creamy aromas strike early. A delicate texture walks beside spiced baked apple. Saline with a flinty minerality cruising on by, a zippy citrusy acid cuts in at the finish. Quite moreish, it hangs long. The mouthfeel is so engaging - quite European in some respects. Well made. Big love.

Drink now to five years.
