Soumah Upper Ngumby Vineyard Chardonnay 2017
Off 20 year old vines, it's barrel fermented with wild yeast - 21% seeing new French oak. Some MLF took place.
A delicious, mouth-watering Chardonnay - quite literally. White stonefruits bristle. It's creamy and toasty - cue the oak, but the fruit remains the hero. An unmistakable minerality chimes in adding interest. Fresh throughout, green melon late adds a dab sweetness to a long and persistent finish. The parting gift is a pleasurable textural ride to happiness which just sticks. A great wine which just feels super fine to touch. Boom!
Drink now to ten years.
