(2022) Sourced from vineyards across the Chablis region, and made in stainless steel without oak influence. This s a very juicy style of Chablis, plenty of lemon peel and ripe apple fruitiness, small hints of herbs and flowers adding charm. It's rounded and relatively creamy for Chablis on the palate, but a zinging burst of lemon and lime acidity and hint of salts braces the quite long finish.
(2012) Eighty Acres is a range of wines from Wakefield, all of which are certified 'carbon neutral'. This Chardonnay and Viognier blend is typical of the Wakefield style with its modest use of oak allowing fragrant, floral Viognier notes of apricot and downy peach skins to come through on the nose, whilst the dry apple bite of the fruit and acidity on the palate is just supported by a whisper of creaminess. It does not have the longest of finishes, but it is an intelligent, dry and barely oaked style that will find fans.
