Skye’s Chardonnay 2020
Skye’s Chardonnay is made exclusively using Burgundy Clones from our Middle Strackney and Old Eight Acre Vineyards at Hush Heath Estate, Chardonnay vines which are valued for producing wines of richness and complexity. To accentuate the lemon and lime varietal character of the Chardonnay grape the wine is unoaked, yet extended lees ageing and bâtonnage softens the acidity and add layers of texture and a hint of creaminess. A fresh yet complex and beautifully balanced English Chardonnay.
Tasting Note: Fresh and citrus-led nose with hints of apple blossom and wonderful thyme notes. A light green-gold colour. A clean citrus-driven palate with notes of lime and melon rind. A delightful aromatic and complex Chardonnay.
Winemaker’s Food Pairing: garden salad with lots of herbs think; dill, mint and sorrel or seafood more specifically oysters and crayfish.
