A very good Chardonnay out of Butcher’s this year. As fit as a butcher’s dog, you might say.
Smooth, composed, light in flavour, cool and savoury, white fruit and citrus flecked with exotic spice and aniseed, quartz-y texture, a little lemon rind in the long fresh finish. Texture is a highlight. So very elegant and adult. So nice. It’s not the most flavoursome of wines, yet I love it all the same.
