Patina Wines [Orange NSW], Reserve Chardonnay 2018

This 2018 Reserve Chardonnay, the other current release from Gerald Naef, Founder and winemaker of Patina Wines, pours with an attractive golden lemon colour
The well-handled cool climate fruit has been crafted into a superb Chardonnay reflective of its terroir, meticulous elevage and pristine viniculture
The primary delivery of aromas and flavours reflects a profile of citrussy melon, nuttiness and flinty minerality. These attributes are underpinned by fine vanillin French oak and slippery malo smoothness
It emotes traits of Montrachet with its seamless long palate of juicy savouriness
Well-balanced and already showing signs of integration, it will definitely reward mid-term cellaring
Price: $60
