2019 Attack Chardonnay

Winemaking and ‘foudre’ (large oval cask) combine to create an alluring nose of the seaside, citrus, stone fruits and Indian spices interspersed with hints of flint. The palate is structured with signature elements of Asian pear, lychee, mandarin, cold tea, spice and seawater. This wine has a mouth-watering finish.

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

The wine begins with aromas of citrus leading to flavours of peach, pear and mandarin orange with notes of honey and spice on the finish. The texture of this wine shows a seamless polish.

97 Points, John Schreiner

When you add the change to organic growing, there is a freshness and lift along with a characteristic sea salt aroma and flavours throughout that underpin pear and mandarin notes, all at a comfortable 13.8 percent alcohol. Finally, a light reductive note and a dash of minerality tighten up the wine and keep its pure fruited chardonnay flavours in check — an impressively reliable next world chardonnay.

94 Points, Anthony Gismondi
