Nutbourne Vineyards Chardonnay 2018
TASTING NOTES This un-oaked Chardonnay gives a very classic bouquet, with touches of ripe grape, orchard fruits and lemon zest. Very good crisp acidity on the palate with a slightly tart apple bite on the finish. Excellent example of an English Chardonnay

What does Nutbourne have to say?
A crisp dry white wine with complexity and character, made from 100% Chardonnay. Notes of apple and tropical fruits with butter and vanilla on the finish, balanced by relatively high acidity.
The grapes were gently pressed and undergo slow cool fermentation, followed by malolactic fermentation, then six months in two-year-old French oak.
This is a wine to pair with food, particularly seafood (hence the lobster on the label) – such as turbot with beurre blanc, scallops with tarragon and chilli, or crab thermidor. Excellent with rich sauces and as a compliment to fine cooking.

The art: Just as Nutbourne wines are only made from grapes grown on the estate, every bottle features Bridget Gladwin’s paintings. Mark making whilst working on a series on geological mapping, this painting came about by accident – the artist insists “a lobster simply appeared on the canvas.”
