Our beautiful Swaby evolves with time and matures with considerable grace. This year sees her striding majestically into an apple orchard in blossom and firing a Colt 45.
Wildly aromatic graphite, flint and blossom aromas mingled with fresh, young sage leaves. She has always been good looking but this year when she walks into a room, heads turn and compliments abound – she’s angular chic and paleo-diet lean with those crackling, acerbic edges that keep her dinner guests hanging on her every word. Complex. Lingers long on the palate and the mind.
100% Kenton Valley Chardonnay, handpicked, wild-yeast fermentation, only four barrels made, some bâttonage, 12 months in 25% new French oak, bottled in December 2016.
