2015 Gestalt Es­palier Ade­laide Hills Chardon­nay

Halliday - - 100 New Notes -

A very in­ter­est­ing wine. Given its in­ten­sity, va­ri­etal ex­pres­sion, com­plex­ity and length, I would never have guessed that it was (par­tic­u­larly) early picked, 60% taken through mlf, and ma­tured in very well used French bar­rels. I might have guessed 10 months mat­u­ra­tion, sim­ply us­ing poker odds. This tastes of per­fectly ripened chardon­nay, not a wannabe sauvi­gnon blanc. It has skipped along for 3 years with­out bat­ting an eye­lid. 12.5% alc. RRP $40 / 2020 / Gestalt Wines gestaltwines.com
