Pegasus Bay 'Virtuoso' Chardonnay

In voorraad
Heldere citroengele tint. Het boeket en de smaak tonen impressies van citrusvruchten, witte perziken, nectarines, heel exotisch dus. Vitaliteit en kracht in de afdronk, maar toch ingetogen en geconcentreerd.

    Opens to burnt match and charry hints with peach and oatmeal popping up. Rich and fat on entry with a lovely silky mouthfeel, completely filling
    your palate. Power yet finesse here, nicely balanced acidity, some tannins giving structure and a fresh, citrusy lift on the long finish. A serious
    wine that will repay time in the cellar. Excellent
  2. 92+/100

    ungrafted 30-year-old vines; fermented in barrel with wild yeasts and aged in one-third new oak, with half of the wine going through malolactic fermentation): Bright medium yellow. Sexy musky reduction to the perfumed aromas of stone fruits, tropical fruits, nutmeg, clove, minerals and nutty oatmeal; reminded me a bit of Meursault. Wonderfully lush and rich but at the same time energetic and firm, with its stone fruit flavours perfectly balanced by spices and flinty minerals; salty and rich in extract. Still wound tight on the finish, even a bit unyielding, this rather penetrating
    Chardonnay begs for a few years of patience. As idiosyncratic as this winery's Sauvignon-Semillon blend and every bit as fascinating.

    A powerful, rich and full bouquet of stone fruit, oak and spice: baked peach and nectarine with white spiced oak, new oak and a distinctive savoury/leesy complexity - even a flint-like edge. On the palate - dry, firm, youthful and intense with fabulous Chardonnay flavours of ripe peach and stone fruits, grapefruit, nutty oak and loads of texture; cashew, grapefruit peel, lees and some sulphide-like suggestions; full-bodied and rich. Great wine!
