Soaring Kite 2016 Chardonnay
This is a real nice glass of wine, flinty, lemon butter cake and yeasty bread dough all popping out of the glass, and I love it when a wine smells as it tastes.
I can’t get my head around whether this is old or new school, it’s flashy enough to be either. Super flavoursome and fully nourished, there’s packets of mid palate texture and a perfect saline like bitterness around the finish that counters it all.
Ridiculously good buying, I’m sure it’ll get better in the next couple of years as well. Surprisingly good.
Alcohol 13% vol.
