2019 Kershaw Chardonnay Lake District Bokkeveld Shale CY95 - 95 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"The 2019 Chardonnay Deconstructed Lake District Bokkeveld Shale CY95 is much more tensile and edgier than the CY96, taut and very fresh, and more mineral-driven by direct comparison. The palate is medium-bodied and focused, delivering fine definition, a killer line of acidity, and hints of popcorn, almond and orange zest toward the finish. Quite peppery on the aftertaste. Yet another brilliant wine from Kershaw. - Neal Martin"

2019 Kershaw Chardonnay Lake District Bokkeveld Shale CY95 - 96 PTS - TA

tim atkin logo 250"A wonderfully assured expression of what Richard Kershaw calls a "classic year for Chardonnay" made with the CY95 clone planted in the western part of Elgin. Racy, taut and perfumed, with oatmeal and citrus flavours, good extract and top notes of wood smoke struck match. Classy stuff. 2022-27"
