Domaine Naturaliste “Artus” Chardonnay, 2018 Margaret River, W.A
Art for art’s sake. Chardy for God’s sake.
Pear, white nectarine, a minor amount of struck match, almond meal, fine ginger and clove spice oak. It’s fresh and bright, some grapefruit zing, but mainly pears studded with spice, tasteful application of savoury toasty oak, slight sizzled butter and nuts, fine powdery texture, cool, long and spicy to close. Excellent release we have here.
