Pyramids Road Chardonnay 2019

Fruit is bought from Bungawarra towards the Northern end of the region, four barrels - 50% new and the balance being first and second fill. These things matter - there are some that believe they don't - for when you place that most sensitive of organs, and yes I mean your nose, into the glass you'll see that new oak readily apparent. 

There's toast, over something like a lime brulee character. The palate is slick and glossy, a rounded presence with a minerally edge. 

It has a depth and persistence of flavour that is quite beguiling. It might feel somewhat awkward at this early juncture, but only in respect to the fact that you know it will develop and integrate further. Impressive. 92
