Yeringberg Chardonnay 2014

GW tasted this but it wasn’t his cuppa so he decided to leave it alone. Fair play. He gave a brief description behind the scenes and while I can see what he means my reaction was positive rather than negative; such is wine and people etcetera. That said I wouldn’t be surprised if this is a polarising wine.

It feels lean and cool. By lean I don’t mean insipid and I certainly don’t mean flavourless. It tastes keenly of grapefruit, mostly, with citrus driving throughout, hints of lettuce leaves, lactose and understated smoky oak. It feels backward and reserved in many ways but the rush of grapefruit keeps it all moving. Personally I think it’s a long termer, in need of patience and patience alone.
