2018 Schmölzer & Brown Thorley Chardonnay
~Engaged, Upright & Electric
In a short time, Tessa Brown and Jeremy Schmölzer have carved out a formidable reputation for uncompromising quality. Thorely is the vineyard they planted at over 1000m altitude in Stanley, after scouring the country for many years. Just one barrel of this was made.
Individual and beguiling, perfumed notes of grapefruit and apple skin lift from the glass. Lean and striking at first, as it unfolds, there are subtle notes of creamy, luscious stone fruit, all enveloped with a precise citrus acidity.
