Savaterre Chardonnay 2017
A gorgeous mouthful of wine; white peach, nougat, pear, acacia, with intense minerality and structure holding this supple texture together. This highly complex wine demands time to unravel. Give it the opportunity to breathe if you must taste in its youth. The colour is a lovely straw with a hint of chartreuse. Elegant, pure aromas of honeysuckle, white peach, pear, exotic spices and brioche with subtle hints of smoke.
On the palate it is wonderfully refined and vibrant with intense, precise flavors that reflect the aromas. A strong, precise seam of minerality runs right through the wine and culminates in a wine of great power and energy that dissolves seamlessly into a pure powerful long satisfying finish.
The Wine Front – ‘Great release here. Potent scents of sandalwood, stone fruit, green apples, wet ferns. Palate is silky, oak slips into soft fruit character and acidity sits glossy underneath. It’s got that feel of supreme elegance and balance. Decadence yet refreshment. Opulence yet control. The quibble will be how much oak you like in chardonnay, and it’s a distinct, lavish feature, but there’s fruit power to back it up. Decanting and cellaring will reward.’ 94 Points - Mike Bennie, winefront.com.au
World Wine – "Hand-harvested fruit across a tightly planted vineyard in Beechworth serves a sleek chassis, driven by thirst-slaking acid cylinders and a body toned by peach, nectarine, apricot and the finest French oak in which this mid-bodied beauty has settled into a finely tuned groove of tension and generosity. Nougatine and creamy cashew at its core, conferring warmth. Layered, impeccably integrated and searingly long, this is very fine...Rating 97 Points." Ned Goodwin MW, Halliday's Wine Companion 2020
