2020 Scorpo ‘Eocene’ Single Vineyard Chardonnay Estate Grown and bottled
A seductive nose, yet one that holds its cards close to the chest with restraint and elegance showcased. Fresh lemon and lime dominate the fruits, however florals equally present with orange blossom and jasmine. There is an openness to the nose, much like a walk in a meadow with fresh flowers and cut grass. The palate supports the nose – elegance, restraint, fresh and pure. It is precise and detailed with a fine gravelly seam driving the core long and deep. The fruits again lemon and lime with a smattering of flowers. Hints of toast and nutmeg in the background provide an added richness and complexity to a well packaged wine.
