The big fella….the big guy….the big….errr…you get it. Nick threw most of the winemaking book at this, and it still came out on top.
Nick Spencer Wines, Chardonnay, Tumbarumba, 2018
Big nose. Cumquat, lemon drop and sweet oak still giving chary notes: slightly smoky, baked Samboy Chicken Chip white bread sandwiches supplemented by sweet French toast spice. Rich, joyous. On the palate…on and on it goes. Big pushes of savoury elements of woody spice and brine. More of that French toast, but with a fine sweetish lemon citrus glaze. From the shouting, come echoes and whispers.
