Charlotte Dalton Grace Chardonnay 12pk 2018
Charlotte Hardy is a global winemaker, resident of the ‘Hitsville’ of South Australian wine regions, Basket Range, and owner of a black Labrador puppy called Keith. For Charlotte, each wine takes on a persona, beginning – as you might expect – in the vineyard, but then revealing its true identity along the winemaking journey. It’s all softly, softly here. No additions (apart from a touch of sulphur in some but not all wines) and no pushing the wines in a direction they don’t want to go. And the wines are amazing. Charlotte coaxes the beauties out of their little vinous shells and reveals some of the most heartfelt and delicious wines we’ve come across here at Vigorous Bros. HQ.
Charlotte Dalton Grace Chardonnay 2018
Light to mid-yellow colour, with a peach and nectarine aspect to the aroma, the palate rich and full, ripe and ample, with lots of weight and density, concentrated fruit and a long, peppery aftertaste. A full, generous style of chardonnay.
