Robert Channon Chopin Chardonnay 2016
Of the wines tasted on a recent visit to the cellar door, this was my preferred choice.
Within seconds of this wine being opened it was poured in the tasting glass - one of those small things which doesn't really help to demonstrate the wine's full potential. I reckon this would sing in the right glassware - but not to be.
Served a touch too cold, it was difficult to coax out its true personality in a quick tasting. Lemon curd, lime pith and roasted cashews slowly revealed themselves. A touch of vanilla cream reared its head as well. Nicely balanced through the mouth with a wonderful length, a lemony acid tang to close was a memorable finish. If only I could have had longer to peruse this with appropriate stemware...
Drink now to eight years.
