Castelli Estate Great Southern Chardonnay 2023


I’m calling this attractive, flavoursome Chardonnay from Denmark the perfect date night wine. It’s price and quality are something you can afford to indulge in perhaps not nightly, but definitely once a week when that special moment calls. It combines ripe stone fruit and citrus with an almost indulgent textural appeal. White peach, nectarine, citrus with a whisper of barley sugar bring a lively and lifted aroma to the glass. Generous in flavour with additional nougat and spice elements, the palate is defined by a bright citrus edge and brisk acidity that works so well, teasing the tastebuds and contributing to a delicious, juicy finish. There is flavour aplenty, but it is delivered with great style.
