2019 PlumpJack Reserve Chardonnay
The 2019 PlumpJack Reserve Chardonnay is simply one of our best yet. This wine is so layered and complex that it can take some time to unpack. The nose opens with stone fruit and mango, which gives way to lemon and lime zest with green pear. Then come floral notes of orange blossom and honeysuckle. Under all of this, there is a warm, sweet baking spice to bring even more intrigue. The palate has citrus, white peach, pomelo, and lychee flavors. The texture is reminiscent of a creamy custard with a live acidity and freshness that is balanced by a structured, almost grapefruit pithy, bite on the lengthy finish.
