Robert Stein Reserve Chardonnay 2017

Fruit from vines planted in 1976, they're handpicked and the fruit whole bunch pressed, 50% new French oak was used with a small portion of malo.

Reserve designation Chardonnay at quite a reasonable price. 

It's brimming with stonefruit, to the point that you can almost sense the juice dripping from the fruit. Hints of citrus augment this, a suggestion of oak framing it up, adding spiced nuances.

Stoney, nigh flinty on initial entry, morphing to a waxy and sensuous note, the texture slippery and glossy. Delicate balance, that interplay of fruit, texture and substance from oak. 92 

Tasted on: Friday 31st May, a Leaf to Fruit day
