False Bay Vineyards Chardonnay 2023
This is a classy Chardonnay with flinty minerality and great purity and restraint. The weather conditions were perfect during the harvest season, which has resulted in a lovely acidity! A citrus core with ripe apple, pear and delicate tropical notes, produces a wine with great poise. Extended time on the lees adds nutty and toasty notes. Intense yet delicate right through to the finish.
