MELVILLE 'INOX' ESTATE CHARDONNAY CLONE 76
The top chardonnay of the estate and one that’s aged all in stainless steel, the 2015 Chardonnay Estate Inox (aged six months in tank) offers a fabulous perfume of pears, spiced apple, citrus blossom and a touch of mint to go with a surprisingly textured and layered style on the palate. I normally prefer the straight chardonnay to this release, but in 2015, this cuvee has a terrific sense of balance and freshness paired with true texture and richness. It should keep nicely for a decade or more.
