In my opinion, this is the best SR Chardonnay vintage I have seen from Nocturne. Tasting it provided one of those “oh baby” moments and there was definitely no spitting…
The nose is truly vibrant, it literally leaps from the glass showing a balance of struck match and rich ripe nectarines. The palate is sensuous, almost creamy but not quite. First time ever I got mandarins (pleasant surprise), rich yellow peaches and oranges. The palate is in complete balance and goes for days. Julian has described it better below but you will not have to twist my arm for another glass.
“This wine is, unsurprisingly, super cool yet different. It’s pale green, smells of white stone fruits and resolved sulphide and something non-Margaret Riveresque - something distinctly international on the nose. Maybe it’s season, maybe it’s terroir but it’s pretty fkn cool. As with every Nocturne wine the texture and flavour are to die for, impeccably framed by hallmark 2021 acidity and al dente phenolic structure. Chardonnay is what Jesus made when he turned water into wine; it’s also why we winemakers have a God complex.” - Julian Langworthy
I feel like Oliver Twist: "Please sir may I have another".
