Juniper Estate Chardonnay 2016

No mistaking this as one that has spent some time in quality new oak (50% new French barriques for 10 months). The requisite vanilla, spice and nutty oak shining through here.

It’s a powerful wine, rich and intense as it initially surges through the palate, an onset of spice and a creamy, richness that personify the wine. 

It possesses good energy, a bit of grapefruit zippiness, in the way it surges through the palate, a length that is seemingly perpetual. Good wine, much to offer, and much ahead of it. 92
