Millton Clos St Anne Chardonnay 2019



"From 25-year-old vines on their own roots and dry-farmed. Taut, vibrant chardonnay with oyster-shell, saline, grapefruit, citrus, ginger and cashew nut characters supported by tangy acidity. Impressive." - Bob Campbell


"The 2019 vintage is again an energetic, luminous wine. The hand-harvested grapes were gently pressed into barriques and the young juice underwent natural fermentation with vineyard yeasts. Only 10 months on primary yeast lees offers a biscuity richness to the primary fruit. Biodynamically we often talk about luminosity and this wine has a lovely brightness and smells like gold.

Exotic perfumes of acorns, vanilla and almonds welcome the finesse and delicacy combined with a full rich palate. These rich layered flavours give a chew and bite to the mouth. Complete with refreshing natural acidity. Very tactile. A calcification of dryness is felt on the middle of the tongue with enhanced minerality, for which this vineyard is now well recognised, contributing to a palate of intense interest. Aging on the spent yeast lees for over ten months adds sweet yeast and shortbread and fills the mouth with a toasty, nutty richness. This incredible wine has length, breadth and tension." - Millton
