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.
WOTM May 2019 A celebration of English Chardonnay purity, and it comes with such welcoming texture and complexity.
Baked apple pudding and ripe stone fruit flavours set the stage for an incredibly approachable Blanc de Blancs.
Both driving and giving, ending on a delicious honey roasted nut complexity that lingers elegantly on the finish.
A really grown-up wine that is more Pouilly-Fumé in style than it is New World Sauvignon Blanc.
Fresh, clean and dry with flavours of crisp apple, lime and a twist of tropical fruit.
A wonderfully full and involving palate with superb flavours of orchard fruit and a real nutty oatmeal quality.
