Hutton Reserve Chardonnay 2022


Lemon meringue pie, Meyer lemon and golden baked apples. School toffees, vanilla bean ice cream and gardenia blooms. You’ll also find the subtle elegance of white peaches, elderflower and unwashed pine wood. A salt spray salinity with electric acidity that draws out the flavour length of the wine. It’s nervy but still fleshy and giving. Crushed almonds and shaved ginger. A joy of a wine that brings together perfectly picked Chardonnay fruit with deftly handled oak. It’s drinking well now but will go the distance, say 4-6 years further with careful cellaring. A wine that can definitely be drunk on its own but also beautiful with potato gratin or a creamy based pasta.
