Pegasus Bay Chardonnay 2017

Chardonnay

The colour is deep lemon/straw. On the nose there are aromas of citrus, as well as honeydew melon and some stone fruit (peach/nectarine). In addition there is a hint of struck match which adds refreshing flinty minerality. There are also some underlying savoury notes (toast and brioche) as a result of the secondary fermentation and lees contact in the barrel. The palate reveals some intense fruit concentration, however there is a nice spine of acidity to ensure the wine remains tight and focussed, with a lingering finish.
