2017 Huntington Estate Barrel Fermented Chardonnay
Description: Made in a full bodied, buttery style, the wine reflects a truly great vintage; a full soil-moisture profile and cool growing season ensured our happy old vines were not under pressure to grow quickly. If I had to write a recipe for an ideal vintage, 2017 would be the model.
Aroma: White peach and citrus. Drinking beautifully now, it will hit it’s buttery, smooth and rounded stride in about 6 months and will continue to soften and meld together.
Palate: Full-bodied and full-flavoured! Lovely line and length, with great fresh natural acidity. Long and lingering finish.
Cellar: To 2070.
