Felton Road Chardonnay 2010

When Chardonnay is good it can blow your mind with complexity and ease of flavours.  Blair Walter crafts some of the best Pinot Noir that I have tasted yet this is the first time I have touched his Chardonnay.

What you get here is an elegant wine with plenty of muscle under the hood. The wine has a little spritz on opening but that soon blows off to reveal pears, spring flowers and orange peel encapsulated in caramelised nuts and glazed grapefruit.  For a wine that is so young I can already feel the beauty within as the flavour copulate with my taste buds. I know that sounds like a weird word to use in a tasting note but I enjoyed this so much I couldn't think of any other word that fit better.
