This is the Thirteenth vintage of David Finlayson Chardonnay. The wine is made from 4 different vineyards. As with previous vintages, the wine shows an elegant minerality with lime-citrus, sourdough and cinnamon flavours. The tight minerality keeps a wonderful acid grip on the palate showing good aging potential. A floral note of wild, white flowers such as frangipani and almond blossom is obvious on the front of the nose and follows through the palate.
Likened by many to the flavours found in cooler Burgundian and Chablis sites, the focus here is to make elegant wines, the ideal accompaniment to foods such as paella, quail and pork.
