This strikes me, in a way, as being a timeless style of Chardonnay. Fashions and fads will come and go but regardless of how anyone might feel ordering this off a restaurant wine list, there will always be a number of us squirrelled away at home with a bottle nearby.
It’s not shy when it comes to oak, but darn those barrels taste good. Aniseedy herbs, stonefruit, smoked almonds, citrus and woodspice. Toasty and a tad creamy yet with a great deal of latent richness and power. Still a baby.94+
