Stella Bella – Chardonnay 2018 75cl Bottle
Brilliant pale lemon with green highlights.
The bouquet has a panoply of scents of great intensity and complexity there is an interplay of the aromatic notes of white flowers, anise and lemon curd with the deeper notes of spicy oak, some yoghurt-like nuances and a hint of struck match.
The deft palate shows both restraint and power. Taut citrus, pear and briny/mineral elements build in the mouth and meld perfectly with the savoury, nutty, fine?grained oak which nevertheless remains unobtrusive.
The finish has a pleasant grapefruit?like tang and the signature length of flavour which shows great persistence.
A wine of elegance & finesse.
Drink with roasted pork belly. Duck.
