Fallow - 2019 Matisse Chardonnay
You cannot go wrong with this Chardy. It massages your gob with long, luxurious fingers, underpinned by a subtle phenolic bitterness and mid-palate warmth. Notes of clove, white pepper, pineapple and white peach.
100% organic Chardonnay from the dry high of the Giammarino vineyard in St Andrews. Fruit was destemmed, 2/3 direct pressed and 1/3 having 7 days skin ferment for added colour and texture. Slumbered in old oak for 9 months with relaxed toppings for some mild oxidation. No additions. This wine is criminally good value.
