Villa Maria, Single Vineyard Taylors Pass Chardonnay 2019 Long Island

15

Tasted from a 10-cl mini sample bottle. From a cold, windy part of Marlborough. 100% barrel fermented. 50% spontaneous fermentation. Full malo. 11 months on lees. TA 6.7 g/l, pH 3.2, RS 0.52 g/l.
Check out that low pH! Has an oddly sweet custard-flavoured-boiled-sweetie nose. Pineapples in a smoke-lined can. Tastes formulaic. (TC)
