"Here is a Chardonnay to give Burgundy a run...."
92 POINTS | John Schreiner
100% estate grown Chardonnay from Margaret's Bench.
9 months sur lie aging in a combination of new (35%) and used (35%) French oak barrels, and stainless steel cask (30%).
An elegant terroir-driven Chardonnay, Dilemma shows expressive aromas of ripe citrus, stone fruit, and fresh chamomile flowers. Soft peach flavours anchor a textural, mineral-driven palate, taut with fresh acidity and subtle chestnut flavours. Clasically structured and restrained, the toasty oak finish is long, savory, and bright.
Morel mushroom risotto with garden thyme and new season white onions; baked pistachio-crusted steelhead with herbed potato mash.
