Remember a day when Chardonnay used to be that really full oak overwhelming experience? So cringeworthy. Those 80’s Chardonnay’s made a really bad name for themselves. It was only really in the last 6 years or so I became aware of a thing called a “new-wave” Chardonnay, which was infinitely more pleasant to drink. I was a little worried this Lindeman’s drop would rely on that oak profile, but I needn’t have!
Such a pleasant surprise in a glass! This Semillon Chardonnay is robust and full of flavour. I don’t get that “dissolved ice cube” vibe I have had from other still white wines.
The flavour profile is fruity, acidic and not too sweet. I would bear in mind that your dedicated reviewer does have quite a high tolerance for acidic profiles, so if you’re a bit averse in that department, approach with caution.
An overall great experience, nice to find a still white with some body to it!
