While this is not quite as rich as the exceptional 2014 vintage, winemaker Josh Donaghay-Spire has delivered another stunning, luxurious take on Chardonnay.
One immediately recognises that beautifully perfumed toasted oak character of the Kit’s Coty Chardonnay. It’s remarkably New World on the nose, with equal parts ripe orchard fruit, tangerine peel and textural spice.
The palate is slightly greener than the previous vintage, with punchy green apple and citrus flavours up front, softening to riper stone fruit flavours on the mid-taste.
Once again, this fine English Chardonnay straddles that fine line between textural oaky delight and precise, punchy fruit purity. There’s still nothing else quite like it.
