Saturday was Fizzy & Crackle’s 5 year adoption anniversary, so it seemed fitting to open this tipple. They’re very spoilt kitties too, that’s their luxe teepee in the photo behind the bottle.
A big thanks to Dialogue PR for this sample bottle. You ladies nailed it on the head, cats + wine = one happy TC!
I found it a bright yellow colour with hints of gold in the glass. When I gave it a good whiff, images of white flowers, apricots and citrus came to mind. While in the mouth it has a lick of juicy melon and lemon with a slightly syrupy mouthfeel and a nip of vanilla. Not as big and bold as I typically like my Chardonnay however I still finished every drop. If you like a light and fresh Chardy, this is for you!
PS: The cooler climate of the Eden Valley is ideal for making lighter style Chardonnay like this one. It’s also a top-notch region for Riesling and Shiraz 😉
All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy!
