2017 Steels Gate Home Block Chardonnay
Wine Rating 
 
94

A wine that speaks of the cool 2017 vintage and a considered hand in the winery; its stylings are almost Chablis like with chiseled fruit, a mineral backbone and an almost saline like edge. The use of oak has a secondary influence, as does the subtle yet lingering build of mealy like texture from time in barrel. To finish there is fig and white grapefruit before clean lines of nectarine and faint spice bring things to a close. Has the pedigree and class to live for another decade.
