Orlando Lyndale Chardonnay 2021

The 2019 was an absolute thoroughbred of a wine: world dominating and completely deserving of all accolades. The 2021 has followed suit by bringing home “Best Chardonnay” and “Best SA Chardonnay” at the Royal Melbourne Wine Awards. From a single vineyard in Woodside in the Adelaide Hills.

Orlando Lyndale

Seeking to find that perfect balance between generosity, flavour, structure and elegance, with achievement. A nose of near perfectly judged oak with mealy savoury notes, creamy and yeasty lees work (but not too much), flinty strikes, citrus cut, white stone fruit skin (skin only, not flesh) and just a delicious hint of seeded bread crust. A remarkable Chardonnay: an achievement of a yeasty, mealy savoury base, sharpened with persistence and quality acid and drive, all tempered by the right amount of the best oak. Please leave the bottle.

RRP: $50
Alc: 13%
Rating: 18.75/20 (95/100)
