2019 Lion's Tooth Chardonnay
Pale straw yellow hue. Youthfully closed at first pour but opening to a powerful flinty mineral complexity, toasted brioche, grilled hazelnuts with subtle ripe yellow stone fruits. Broad shoulders with a rich, chalky, mouth-filling texture that is flowing and long. Ripe yellow stone fruits, hints of almonds and hazelnuts. A salty and salivating wine that marries power and elegance. This 2019 Lion’s Tooth is an elegant, youthful example of power and intensity which should age gracefully for many years.
~ 97 Points ~ "Taut, nervy chardonnay with citrus, grapefruit, green apple, saline, oyster-shell, ginger, baguette crust and green apple. You can practically taste the vineyard's limestone-rich soils. A high-energy wine showing a strong sense of place and with the ability to develop well with bottle age." - Bob Campbell MW
