crudo – chardonnay

$27

Many of you will probably be familiar with Luke Lambert’s Crudo wines but for only the second time ever, he’s released a Chardonnay under this label, which we’re loving at the moment.

From three separate vineyards, a little bird tells us that some of this was under flor for a few months over winter. Anyone who knows Clever Polly’s will know how much we love flor, and in this instance it’s no different. 2016 was a hot vintage which has ensured that there’s plenty of fruit sweetness in this wine- stone fruit and pear-┬ábut there’s piercing acidity and a lovely┬ásavoury note from time spent in older French oak and an oxidative twang to keep things balanced. We’re pretty sure that your night will be so much better with a glass of this in hand…
