Wine Tasting Note: Porter Mill Station Chardonnay, 2004, Swartland, South Africa.
Flying Corkscrew £6.99.
Disappointing. It is all very well being fresh, crisp, light and perfectly drinkable – but were is the excitement? Where is the edge to the ‘perfectly pleasant’ apple flavours that sets your tongue singing or the complexity of aroma that makes your nasal passages quiver in anticipation? What is more disappointing is that I wanted the Chenin Blanc for which I have heard excellent comments. Still this is unwooded with 12.5% alcohol and would be fine with fish and maybe the acidity would also cut through some richer creamy sauces.
