Description

The Donaldson family never stand still and are constantly seeking to improve on their long held traditions. Chardonnay is a case in point, the wine often very complex and funky in its youth, but the sheer weight and concentration of the wine always turning into something special. This 2016 vintage appears to be hitting its straps earlier than most, a sensationally creamy and mealy mid-palate showing off its abundant fruit. Searingly complex and thrillingly innovative, Pegasus Bay Chardonnay is the market leader.

Smells

Sizzled almond butter, gunsmoke, grilled nectarine and peach. Gorgeous.

Tastes

Succulent brioche, vanilla and creme brulee notes against a mineral and enervating acid line, the whole thing finishing creamy and seriously lovely. Benchmark stuff, there are few better.
