2019 Ochota Barrels Slint Chardonnay
Fleshy Chardonnay from Taras yum.
A tightly wound cool climate chardonnay which leads with mouth-watering grapefruit and nectarine. Mealy granny smith apples and a fine-tuning of grilled hazelnuts and honeysuckle spice sets the foundation for the almost nettle like svelte texture. Aromatically evolving between gun flint, bee’s wax and maya lemon rind. The palate is taut and precise, and finishes long with powerful elegance.
