Taylors Chardonnay 2021


A blend from Padthaway (70%) and the Clare Valley (30%), this offers some serious interest for Chardonnay lovers. A lovely pale straw, there is elegance here, a Chardy which falls towards the leaner end of the spectrum. Citrus and pear notes with just a hint of peaches; nicely balanced, clean and focused. The oak integration has been expertly handled. There was a small amount of the wine which was barrel fermented and then lees stirred for a period of four months before another 6-8 months in French oak before blending and bottling. Good acidity with a minerally undertow. Bright with good length and persistence, this can be enjoyed now or any time over the next three to four years.
