The wonderful warmth of the 2018 vintage, together with the already proven brilliance of Chapel Down’s Kit’s Coty Vineyard, has resulted in the best Chardonnay from Chapel Down to date. The Kit’s Coty is whole bunch pressed and then fermented in old French oak barrels for nine months.
The Kit’s ’18 allures on the nose with its peach skin, nectarine and honeysuckle openness, together with vanilla, spice and hazelnut.
To taste, it’s a sumptuous mixture of ripe stone fruit and crisp orchard and citrus fruits. The mid-taste is supple and generous, and the 13.5% ABV brings a glamorous richness to the wine.
The textured nutty and spiced complexities seal the deal – this is a must-try for English Wine lovers.
