2019 Swaby Chardonnay
An absolutely stunning vintage for our lovely Swaby. Last year’s slight shyness and flinty minerality gave way in this warmer year to flavours of fresh, juicy, chewy pears. The concentration is almost like that of dried fruit. Lightly smokey, thoroughly integrated oak. The texture is positively velvety with an enticingly crisp inflection at the finish. This one will keep you glued to your glass.
100% Piccadilly Chardonnay, handpicked, wild-yeast fermentation, some bâttonage, 10 months in 25% new French oak, unfiltered and unfined, only 100 dozen made.
