Riversdale Estate Crater Chardonnay 2021


White lilies, juiced lemons and nashi pear. Blue river stones struck against one and another, it’s so present you can almost hear it. Look, it’s hard not to get carried away when Chardonnay is this good! Pomelo pith, danish feta and polenta. The fruit feels perfectly ripe, like it took its time and unfurled when it was good and ready, no rush, just taking life day by day. It’s followed by a bath of natural acidity and a creaminess of butter and sugar in a mixing bowl. Oak is of the classiest kind and harmonies like a choir. It’s delectable, lick the spatula clean. It’s that good! Drinking well now but will cellar upwards of 8 years. This would look like a beacon of hope sitting beside a pillowy bowl of mashed potatoes, ah yeah that’s it, just give the girl what she wants!
