Holyman Chardonnay 2020Regular price $61.00
Joe Holyman makes Chardonnay and he is really good at it. In fact some of the Chardonnays I have tried from him in the last few years have been sublime. This 2020 vintage Holyman Chardonnay is no different. Hints of flint and struck match on the nose meld beautifully with white peaches and oranges. The palate is more of the same with a slight creamyness to match. It goes for days and is kept in train by wonderful acid that checks but doesn't dominate. Very yummy and it will just get better with time. Around 2025 this wine will be stunning.
All class. Fine-boned and filigreed, tight, precise, but delivers flavour and abundant energy. There’s a little whiff of struck match, white peach, citrus, vanilla almond cream and cinnamon, maybe some green olive, with outstanding drive and length. Pure and wonderful. Love at first sip.
