24/01/2016 – Seven Springs Unoaked Chardonnay 2013

(2016) An estate and a wine I've followed since their first vintage in 2010, and this 2013 harvest wine has benefitted from earlier picking which has brought it in with a modest 12.5% alcohol and a zippily fresh and crunchy character. Lots of fresh-sliced apple and lemon on the nose, and a gently creamy quality, then it bursts onto the palate with a really vivacious brightness, apple again and star fruit, the citrus freshness of the finish, but not austere or too dry, giving it sippability and quite broad food-matching appeal.
