False Bay Crystalline Chardonnay 2020
Crystalline Chardonnay has none of those muddying, sickly additions that compel so many to declare – “We don’t like Chardonnay!” No toasted barrels, no oak chips, no oak-flavoured powder. This crystalline wine reflects a noble white grape in its purest form.
Such a lovely example of a vibrant, fresher and more elegant style of Chardonnay. It shows delicate floral and pear notes, with minerality in abundance. With the longer spontaneous fermentation, the wine developed much more complexity and a beautiful length on the palate, without being fatty. Just well balanced with great freshness and texture. Unoaked and understated, but persistent on the finish.
