2015 Sin­gle­file The Vivi­enne Den­mark Chardon­nay

Halliday - - Halliday Wine Companion Awards 2019 -

Picked across three passes through the vineyard fo­cus­ing on sep­a­rate plots, form­ing a beau­ti­fully crafted chardon­nay, ir­re­press­ible and de­li­cious to drink, de­spite its un­doubted age­abil­ity. Toasted hazel­nuts, al­mond crois­sant and truf­fle notes over­ride the un­der­ly­ing creamy peach­i­ness. A vis­ceral min­eral thrust pushes it long, with the oak buried be­neath the sheer con­cen­tra­tion of flavour. As a whole, seam­less. If I tasted this blind on a good day, I may think it a fine pro­ducer’s Meur­sault from a top site. Screw­cap. 13% alc. (Ned Good­win)
