Somerled 2016 Chardonnay
Somerled 2016 Chardonnay:
As I’ve written before, 2016 was a terrific vintage; hence the emergence of the Somerled Reserve Chardonnay which you may have tasted already!
So our 2016 Chardonnay is developing along really good lines. The colour is slightly deeper than when we released it in 2017, and the nose and palate are great. All the aromas and flavours that were fresh and youthful 12 months ago are now deeper and richer and they’re all so well integrated. Harmonious is a lovely word to describe wine flavours, and I think this wine is well described as harmonious.
It’s hard to tell when the wine may reach a peak, but it’s probably got a year before it gets there. I’m looking forward to further development of that soft full velvety palate.
