Botanica – The Mary Delany Collection Chardonnay 2018

Description

The wine is pale blonde in colour with a delicate balance of fruit and oak flavours. The fruit component has citrus notes of lemon zest and lime while the oak component is present as wood spice, specifically vanilla pods and nutmeg. The wine is medium bodied with soft, lingering vanilla flavours on the palate. The acidity is well balanced and perfectly offsets a creamy mouthfeel. Ginny Povall – Botanica Wines
