Wills Domain Cuvée d’ Élevage 2019 Chardonnay Pinot Noir
Pale straw, with green tinge.
Showing brightly fruited notes of lemon peel white fleshy nectarine and grapefruit with a subtle touch of sweet basil leaves.
The wine is immediately appealing on the nose showing brightly fruited notes of lemon peel, white fleshy nectarine and grapefruit with a subtle touch of sweet basil leaves. It is juicy and vibrant on the palate with youthful fruit intensity together with crisp acidity, finishing long and mouth-watering.
Whole-bunch pressed to extract only the purest juice with minimal solids, yielding juice and wine with a greater and more delicate aromatic complexity as well as an elegant, less volumous, palate. Cold settled for three days, after which the clear juice and light solids were removed from the heavy solids (which were discarded). Fermented in stainless steel. Ferment occurs at 12°C in order to preserve freshness. Aged in stainless steel before dosage and secondary fermentation in bottle. Battonage every two weeks.
Match with smoked salmon, sushi or Foie Gras.
