Puddleduck Chardonnay 2019
This is not your classical Chardonnay by any means, hand-picked, whole bunch pressed and barrel fermented this wine was given lots of love by Darren (as it should – it’s Jackie’s favourite wine and a happy wife equals a happy life). Subtle stone fruits combined with melon notes and a touch of vanilla on the nose from 10 months in French Oak barriques (40% new). This vibrant fruit driven style has a lovely soft mouth feel, with a backbone of subtle acidity and beautiful grapefruit flavours. The touch of acidity will ensure that this wine will cellar for many years to come.
