This is the first English Chardonnay from London Cru, the Urban winery based in West Brompton, who is now focussing on English wine.
This wine opens with a bold, bright nose, full of green orchard fruit and citrus. It’s all green apples with a hint of pear.
The palate continues in a similarly refreshing style, with crisp green apple and bold, zippy citrus flavours. There’s a hint of mineral and a light peppery note on the finish.
The winery suggests pairing with Whitstable Bay oysters, and I must say that does sound like a brilliant combination with the Chancery Lane’s vibrant zingy character.
