Russell & Suitor Cazadora Chardonnay 2022


Again, hints from both malolactic fermentation and new oak to be seen here. A pale straw colour. This is youthful but very promising and given 12 months or so, there seems no reason it will not step up to the level of the ’21. Pale straw, there are notes of cashews, stonefruit and a hint of the tropicals, notably a touch of mango. There is a lovely elegance to this wine with very good focus. At this stage, a touch rawer than the 21’, but on its way. A lot of promise here and it might well age for even longer – six to eight years.
