(2021) The cuvée's name means 'gold', and indeed there is a pale gold colour with flecks of green to this Chardonnay, whole bunch pressed into French oak, with fermentation with indigenous yeasts followed by 11 months in barrel with bâtonnage. There's a distinctive flintiness and creamy Brazil nut oakiness, but the fruit is cool and precise - more orchard fruit than tropical for sure. In the mouth a Seville orange or even orange bitters bite to this is set against quite a ripe, fleshy mid-palate fruit, that buttery and nutty oak reasserting in the finish, though matched by the freshness. Impressive stuff from winemaker Julianne Brogden, who works with selected grape growers to craft her small batch wines. No UK retail stockist at time of review.
