Leeu Passant 2015 Cape Winemakers Guild Radicales Libres Chardonnay

Winemaker: Andrea Mullineux. Inspired by the extended barrel-aged white wines of the Jura and Rioja, this Chardonnay was aged in barrel for five years after fermentation. The nose is mature and concentrated right off the bat, but still with a salted-nut freshness that offers surprising vibrancy to the toasted almond, creamed pear and baked apple characteristics. The palate is medium in weight yet vibrant, with more mouthwatering freshness and lemon-sea-spray salinity that complement the more mature and ripe fruit flavors. Final accents of fresh straw, honeydew rind, peach pit and dried yellow-apple skin lend depth and grace to the close. Lauren Buzzeo
