Melville 2017 Estate Chardonnay
Straw yellow hued, with rich notes of toasted pine nuts, honeycomb, grilled pineapple and marzipan coming through initially. In the background, more subtle impressions of flint, oyster shell, sea salt and dried Meyer lemon also linger. Vibrant and focused, with a firm streak of acidity that maintains the wine’s brightness and energy.
