Sidewood Mappinga Chardonnay 2022


Following the highly rewarded 2021 vintage of this same wine, from a cool season this iteration is still youthful and tight, colour barely past clear with a coiled energy waiting to be revealed over the next few years. While its white stone fruit flavours remain a touch veiled at the moment (December 2023), the citrus notes are more obvious though you can still sense the presence of cream bun deeper down. And again the estate provenance element of a subtle bitter lemon flavour is in play. Plenty to look forward to in this wine.

To be released mid-late 2024 TBC
