2016 Attack Chardonnay

Winemaking and foudre combine to impart aromas of the seashore with wet stones, flint, lychee and spices on the nose, combined with a tropical lift. The palate has a zesty entry, with a hint of richness and minerals followed by a lingering flavour of lychee, ginger, spice and seat salt. This is a unique, modern Chardonnay that also pays homage to the old world.

  • Wine Accolade - 94 Points - Anthony Gismondi, Wine Writer

The wine begins with aromas of citrus and tropical fruits mingled with vanilla; all of this is echoed on the rich palate.

95 Points, John Schreiner

This reserve-style wine is fermented in a single new foudre. Showing superb definition and focus, it bangs away with flint-edged tree fruit, spice, toast and a dash of sea salt

94 Points, Paul Gregutt - Wine Enthusiast Magazine

Attack opens with an attractive seashore scented breeze and a brightness that pulls you into the glass.

94 Points, Anthony Gismondi
