L. Viscek Vineyard Chardonnay 2018 (Magnum)

Tasting Notes

On the palate it is medium-bodied with flavours of golden delicious apple and vanilla, balancing acidity and a touch of tannin from the barrel fermentation. The finish is long with savoury flavours and a touch of lingering acidity.

Drink now at cool room temperature or hold for the short-to-medium term for added complexities. Pair with savoury dishes rich in cream or butter.

Here's a ripe, rich, polished and quite delicious chardonnay from a neighbouring vineyard of 13th Street in the Creek Shores appellation. It has an almost opulent nose with yellow pear, vanillin, hazelnut and toast all nicely interwoven. It is medium-full bodied, quite smooth, satiny and glossy in texture, with fine acidity. The length is excellent to outstanding. May be the best chardonnay yet delivered by 13th Street. Tasted May 2020.
