This is the second vintage of wine from Busi-Jacobsohn – but it feels that this encouraging new estate is already starting to enter its stride. This is the first of two new 2018 vintage releases, with more to follow, and is a classic blend of 60% Chardonnay, 25% Pinot Noir and 15% Pinot Meunier.
The nose on this wine really appealed with aromas of crushed oyster shell, lemon zest, crunchy orchard fruit and a light seasoning of pastry.
The palate delivers on the promise of the nose; fine-tuned, linear acidity and crunchy green apples lead to riper pear and apricot flavours. This is really composed and fragrant, and, in my opinion, quite a step up on the first release.
