Wine Front 94 points!

A fuller, more powerful iteration of Cape Mentelle Chardonnay. Peach, melon, fig, gingernut biscuits, cashew and toast, with a whisper of struck match and clove. Medium bodied, glycerol and flint push and pull the texture, preserved lemon and biscuits in with the melon, and the finish comes up with lime and grapefruit, and toasted oak spices. This is what you might call a bit more ‘Rolls Royce’ in style for Cape Mentelle, but it certainly hits the spot.
