Patina Orange Reserve Chardonnay 2018


A slightly deeper colour here, not unexpected from an extra year. This wine also exhibits oak but it is more moderate and integrated than in the 2019, again this is hardly unexpected with the extra year. This is a leaner style, more formal, nicely balanced and quite complete. Stonefruit, gunflint and a hint of struck match aromas, then stonefruit flavours morphing into pears. This is reminiscent of a fine Chablis.
