2019 Sorrenberg Chardonnay
It’s a slightly more acid driven release from 2019 with licks of honey water and sweet lime juice as the main part of the conversation. From 2018 to 2019 we see, a less rich, less pulpy, less fleshy and less powerful release, though the same swoop of judicious oak seasoning, curls of nutty savouriness and a light, salty sparkle of minerally things through the finish are familiar. I like the freshness here, drinkability right now is off the charts, it spreads itself a little wider in the palate; perhaps its early appeal keeps it off a higher plain? It’s complex and layered as always – the fruit does this, there’s so much detail in each sip, and the finish is ultra long and fine. A masterclass with the variety again, with wonderful variation of another emphatic growing season. And that’s the way you do it.
