Villion Chardonnay 2020

Tasting Notes

Confident appeal of cinnamon dusted apple crumble on the entry with a delightful but quirky nartjie peel and kumquat salinity that reflects the spontaneous fermentation of this intriguing Chardonnay. Layered with crushed-stone flintiness and white pear finesse that prolong the interest.

Bright and fresh entry with an instant mouth-filling sensation, rounding the edges. Elegant in style, with a refreshing, mouth-watering minerality complemented by nuances of salted caramel and almond.
