Lourensford Limited Release Chardonnay
2017 Double Gold
The wine has intense ripe pineapple and melon flavours on the nose. It is supported with white peach, apricot and hints of jasmine, lemongrass and ginger. Voluptuous butterscotch, orange peel, roasted cashew nuts, toffee and vanilla flavours in the wine reminds of a wet pine forest floor in autumn. The wine has a brilliant linear acidity and dominant dense core with layered sweetness due to the natural fermentation. The roundness on the pallet and a beautifully integrated texture with flavours of orange blossom and lemony zest supported by a creamy finish coats your mouth and make you want to spend more time in the presence of this big wine.
