MELVILLE 'INOX' ESTATE CHARDONNAY CLONE 76
MELVILLE

The 2016 Chardonnay Inox is rich, unctuous wine. Tangerine peel, apricot, honeysuckle and a whole range of tropical notes run through this ample, full-bodied Chardonnay. This is an especially big, extroverted style, aging in neutral oak adds finesse, but there is no way getting around the wine's breadth. The 2016 has really gained in volume since I last tasted it, about two years ago.
