Wills Domain Eightfold Chardonnay 2023


The team aim to preserve the vibrancy and freshness of the wine by ensuring that only a small percentage goes through malolactic fermentation. It works well. The colour here is a gleaming gold and the wine is taut, poised and refined. Notes of stonefruit, figs and lemongrass with very gentle oak evident and a smoked riverstone note. The palate sees more melon and peach characters. Juicy and delicious, with a seductive texture, here is a wine of medium length and fine acidity. There is room for this to improve even more in the coming years. Enjoy now and for the next five years.
