Domaine Naturaliste, Purus Chardonnay 2013
Single vineyard. Aged in 40% new, lightly toasted oak. No Malolactic Fermentation (which gives that buttery, creamy note to Chardonnay). The intent is for a ‘pure’ expression. Fruit driven, ripe peachy stone fruit, rock melon and grapefruit citrus. The deft oak brings a touch of wheatgerm and nougat. Zipline tight and poised.
