Moss Wood 2020 Chardonnay-Ken Gargett, Wine Pilot
This is an exciting Chardy from Moss Wood (aren’t they all?). Scintillating colour with the greens mixing with a pale sunrise. This is young, for me at this stage, a little too young. Notes of limes and lemons, some ginger. Good oak integration adding to the complexity. A ripe style with rockmelon, herbs and nuts. It really needs three to five years, though it is attractive now with a lingering finish. This is one of the better Moss Wood Chardies, but it appears younger at this stage than most do. Give it time and it will reward you.
