2021 David Finlayson Chardonnay...$19.99
South African Chardonnay
A lily of the valley perfume opens to present ripe fruit flavours of cantaloupe melon, lemon zest, tangerine, and a touch of dried papaya. The palate has a gentle fruit character, so easy-drinking, with attractive notes of white peach, yellow cherry, and chamomile.
Rated 96/100 Decanter Magazine
As with previous vintages, the wine shows an elegant minerality with lime-citrus, sourdough and cinnamon flavors. The wine keeps a wonderfully tight grip on the palate, showing good aging potential. A floral note of wild, white flowers and almond blossom is obvious on the front of the nose and follows through the palate -- importer
"There are some distinct similarities to the flavors found in cooler Burgundian sites – perhaps most similar to a fine Meursault. " - Winemaker
