Plan B! ‘The King’ Chardonnay 2015 White Wine – Margaret River, Australia
The serious stuff:
This is a modern Chardonnay from the wonderful Margaret River region of Western Australia.
Margaret River is world renown for producing excellent Chardonnay. Ours is fine, elegant and long. Sourced from a single site in the southern, cooler end of the district, barrel fermented and matured and bottled whilst still retaining the varietal vibrancy that is Chardonnay at its best.
55% is fermented in French oak barriques and the remainder in stainless steel, with maturation taking place for 9 months (55% second and third-fill French barriques, 45% in stainless steel).
But what does it taste like?
Chardonnay is the disputed King of the whites and holds and trump card.
The King is nervy and elegant, with a mineral accent and backbone of citrusy acidity. The velvet cloak, the creamy countenance and steely resolve, it’s all there in a perfect textural juxtaposition. Clearly, he moisturises.
“If the crown fits, wear it.”
