David Finlayson Chardonnay 2020

This is the Fourteenth vintage of Edgebaston Chardonnay.  The wine is made from 4 different vineyards.  As with previous vintages, the wine shows an elegant minerality with lime-citrus, sourdough and cinnamon flavours. A floral note of wild, white flowers such as frangipani and almond blossom is obvious on the front of the nose and follows through the palate.

FoodSuggest Likened by many to the flavours found in cooler Burgundian and Chablis sites, the focus here is to make elegant wines, the ideal accompaniment to foods such as paella, quail and pork
Ageing The tight minerality keeps a wonderful acid grip on the palate showing good ageing potential.
