The Kostas Rind Chardonnay is grown in a 1.5 hectare plot and the wine is fermented in French oak barrels of which typically 20% are new. Fermentation occurs without the addition of cultured yeast and the wine remains in barrel on yeast lees over winter with only a small amount of malo-lactic conversion taking place. It is racked around eight months after vintage, and returned to barrel for a further three months before bottling.
Brilliant pale straw colour with a faint tinge of green around the edges and a watery hue. Lifted nectarine and white peach aromas mix with dried honey and bees wax like notes followed by hints of lemon butter and spice. The palate possesses a wonderful combination of intensity, purity and freshness with succulent nectarine, white peach and citrus fruits overlaying subtle dried honey, nougat, light cashew and spice nuances. Well rounded and gently creamed in texture, it finishes dry with an enlivening burst of fresh acidity on the long expansive aftertaste.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
A more relaxed feel to Kostas Rind from this release. Lots of interest, just this textural feel that I haven’t seen for a while. Lovely stuff.
Supple and mellow in its vibe but dances with its light and lacy flavours and pretty scents. Lots of just-ripe stone fruit, lemon balm, soft talc-like minerally characters, faint Parisian almond and halva with a building core of grapefruity acidity that rolls long through the cool and brittle-bright finish. It’s gentle in a way, speaks softy, a little unassured, let’s say. In all that, a comforting, gentle approach and gigantic appeal; this misses nothing in its roll call of detail. Very good drinking, even right now. Drink 2020-2028.
