1 case
Equiv. £35.00 per bottle

Tasting Note:

The most elegant Om Santi Chardonnay to date, it’s no wonder the 2021 vintage wowed the Decanter judges! A barrel selection from their organic Om Santi vineyard; it is a cool terraced site with shallow stony soils, producing wines that are vibrant and expressive with a lovely mineral undertone. A blend of two Chardonnay clones, the grapes are whole bunched pressed and fermented with wild yeasts before aging for 12 months in French oak barriques. The 2021 is bursting with fresh stone fruits of white peach and nectarines making way to dried apple and nougat from the gentle integration of oak. This is all topped off with a mouth-watering sea spray salinity and oyster-shell minerality on the finish.
