2020 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.

The wine begins with aromas of spice and lemon leading to flavours of pineapple and pear with an underlying note of sea salt. That gives the wine a savoury finish.

97 Points, John Schreiner

It opens with an alluring lemon and saline seaweed nose with a vanilla undertone. The palate has an understated elegance marked with spiced pears, tangerine, and seawater.

95 Points, Anthony Gismondi

This offbeat combination of straw, petrichor, warm pie crust and Limeade made me want to inhale this wine. Flavors of lemon pith, juniper, coriander and chilled citron sake are just as compelling. The wine's acidity will make the mouth of the person sitting next to you water.

92 Points, Michael Alberty - Wine Enthusiast Magazine
