2016 Collalto Chardonnay
Wine Rating 
 
94

There are a number of 2016 Chardonnay releases starting to roll in with this release from Collalto amongst the best I’ve tried of the vintage to date. It’s still youthful, but has some real class that will show itself in years to come. The nose is a floral expression of white peach, melon and richer cashew.

This is a chardonnay of great balance with an underlying web of finely filamented acidity. Varietal stone fruits have an edge to them in terms of both the lithe citrus drive and an almond meal richness the is seamlessly integrated. The wine finishes with purity of peach but there is a lingering note of leesy richness that suggests this will grow into something special over time.
