Denton Yellow Chardonnay 2015

I certainly wouldn’t want all chardonnay to be like this but I haven’t been quite so struck, or mesmerised, by a wine in quite some time. I opened this yesterday lunchtime and for various reasons I was up late working; after midnight I could still be seen swirling and tasting it. It’s become like a friend to me. I don’t have any concrete details on its making, though it’s been suggested that a) only two barrels were made, b) only one of these barrels has been bottled, the second to be bottled two years hence, c) it was picked super early, at super low baume, and drumroll d) it’s been kept under flor. It’s wax sealed under DIAM cork; it’s packaged in the kind of slender bottle more commonly used to package fortified wines; the capacity of each bottle is 500ml. I had no idea what to expect before I opened it; I thought it might be sweet; it’s not.
