2020 French Family Release Chardonnay
Little Engine’s French Family Release Chardonnay showcases stony minerality throughout – classically reminiscent of Chablis. Summer floral notes, aromas of melon, stone fruit and lemon curd lead into a bright and fresh palate of white peach, Asian pear and hints of cinnamon and a touch of white pepper all structured with vibrant acidity.
Best enjoyed now through 2024.

Even the nose is enticing with its soft spritz of honeysuckle, white florals, golden apple, pear, ginger, white pepper and lemon curd each flavour so defined, refined and delicious. On the palate this amazing dry, unoaked Chardonnay is medium-plus-bodied with laser balance fruit to acidity; plushy with dried white florals, fresh ripe orchard fruit, creamy lemon pudding, stony mineral flavours viscous, rounded, and vibrant with a forever finish (more than a minute). This is an amazing, complex, elegant, and once-in-a-lifetime Chardonnay.
