The Wine Front review – Scorpo Aubaine Chardonnay 2017
5% new oak, fermented wild in barrel, no battonage, no malo.
On song. Racy but fleshy and flavoursome. Plenty of zip and a clear acid line, for sure, the ‘no malo’ aspect abundantly clear. But it works a treat. Green apple, honeysuckle, nectarine and citrus flavours shoot joyously through the palate. Wait another 6-12 months and it will be better again. Steely/chalky finish works well too.
