2019 Ngeringa Chardonnay
New livery for Ngeringa and it looks great.
A bit more organic, to match the ethos and commitment to the certified organic/biodynamic farming, perhaps. Hazy gold in glass, hazy kind of feel to texture too. Lots of flavour, brightness and freshness in tow. Scents of young stone fruit, a squeeze of lime, some nutty-saline characters too, but not strong. Drives with lots of chardonnay grape character in taste, nearly rich but the acidity keeps it all perky and crisp. You can see this mellowing beautifully into something well-balanced but buttery and generous. It’s really delicious. Mike Bennie - The Wine Front
