Description

Gusbourne Guinevere Chardonnay 2018

Like popcorn in a bottle! Gusbourne Guinevere Charodnnay is complex and elegant, a superb barrel fermented cool climate English Chardonnay.

Clear bright gold and lemon yellow colour. Generous aromas of floral blossoms, orange peel, butter, rye bread and creamy oak with a lemon citrus streak. On the palate there is a combination of lemon citrus freshness, apple, vanilla, buttery and toasty notes. Creamy mouthfeel with a bright acidity on the dry palate. Lovely lingering mineral finish.

100% Chardonnay from Gusbourne’s Boot Hill vineyard near Appledore in Kent. Until quite recently it would have seemed inconceivable that a vineyard in Kent, a (hefty) stone’s throw from the M20 and Eurostar railway line and just six miles from the Channel, would end up producing a Chardonnay to rival those of the variety’s spiritual home in Burgundy. Hand-picking and sorting in the vineyards, bringing only the highest quality grapes to the winery. Gentle pressing in whole bunches, then fermentation and ageing (for 10 months) in French oak barrels.

Are you a Chardonnay fanatic? If this wine sounds appealing, we think you’ll want to give Penley Estate Genevieve Chardonnay 2018 a try.

AWARDS & ACCOLADES

 

Silvery hue, a well-defined bouquet with almond and sesame scents, developing subtle marine-like notes with aeration. The oak is nicely integrated, which is underpinned by a fine bead acidity that counters the creamy texture. Sour lemon mixes with white peach and hazelnut, maintaining impressive focus and poise toward the persistent finish. Excellent.

Aged in 20% new French oak for 10 months. A pronounced sweet vanilla, yellow apple and creamy brioche perfume with notes of thyme and flint. Saline and buttery on the palate, with concentrated vanilla, ripe yellow apple, pear drop and lime-like acidity. Duster with wood spices; butterscotch flavors linger on.
