Chardonnay Mount Harlan 2017 Calera
€ 47,13 (in Vat)
The 2017 Chardonnay Mount Harlan went through full malolactic and aged 15 months in 30% new French oak. The nose unfurls to mushroom tart, prosciutto, baked quince and golden apples with a streak of crushed shell/saline plus accents of orange blossoms, jasmine and hazelnuts. Light to medium-bodied, it's minerally on the entry, slowly spreading savory wings in the mouth, lifted by tangy acidity and finishing long, bright and mineral again. I love the dynamic character of this wine. 1,900 cases produced.
Winespectator / James Suckling (91)
Well-structured, juicy and redolent of pear tart flavors, with spicy shadings. The buttery finish is nicely framed by hints of wet stone and dried citrus.
