Montalto Tuerong Block Chardonnay 2016
Focused and concentrated on the nose. Almond meal white-fleshed stonefruit, vanilla and whispers smoke from the oak, matchsticks and flint. Great aromas to begin.
A minerally drive saunters through the mouth at ease catching the eye of passers by. Some tension through the mid palate creates anticipation for what is to come. Lemons, flashes of orange peel and grapefruit acidity make the mouth water. Some creamy characters and licks of caramel are evident but the fruit keeps them in check. I could infuse this into my blood stream forever and die a happy man. Go here. Please do.
Drink now to eight years.
