Catalpa Chardonnay 2018

Catalpa Chardonnay 2018

If Chardonnay really is making a comeback in the UK it must be due, at least in part, to wines like this. It's no longer shameful to ask for a Chardonnay with plenty of oak and when done well, as here, the result is a happy reunion. This is a big wine with lots of lovely pineapple, honey and vanilla nuances, but it is not overblown, the acidity is excellent, and people are loving it.

"Atamisque is better known for its subtle, elegant reds than its whites, but this is a very impressive Chardonnay. Judiciously oaked, with 50% of the wine fermented in stainless steel, this is a refreshing, nuanced white with citrus and stone fruit flavours complemented by minerality."
