Mayfield Chardonnay 1815 Orange 2023


A fine, taut, poised example of a fresh and ever-so-slightly lean Chardonnay from a high altitude vineyard in the Orange region. Elegant yes, but that does not mean any lack of flavour or intrigue. A yellow gold hue with quite a pungent nose, there is oak, spices, orange rind notes and white peaches. The flavours are actually quite bold and there is a creamy, almost buttery, texture. Balance and length and good intensity for the full journey. This will drink beautifully for the next five to six years, likely more.
