Tasting Notes
This is the Eigth vintage of Edgebaston Chardonnay. The wine includes grapes from a 30 year old vineyard with 3 different clones of Chardonnay planted. 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 ageing 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.
