Moreson FYM Chardonnay 2017

£38.95 incl. VAT

2 in stock

NOSE & PALATE
Powerful butterscotch and marmalade on the nose which is joined by toasted nuts on the palate. Rich and mouth-coating, there’s a seamless balance between the fruit and oak on the palate in a way that’s hard to describe.

ACCOLADES
4 1/2 stars (94 Points) – Platter’s 2020 SA Wine Guide

//A Fox and Yankee and a Mike walk into a bar; the fox orders a Chardonnay, Yankee Doodles and Mike performs some magic.

This Chardonnay takes no prisoners – it had everyone wide-eyed at our first tasting as the rich butterscotch of the FYM consumed them as they consumed it. The grapes for the FYM (or Fox.Yankee.Mike.) come from a minuscule block next to the vineyard’s private airstrip which grows a clone (CY18) that isn’t found anywhere else in the world. Previously thought extinct, this low-yielding clone of Chardonnay was found thriving on the Môreson farm. The grapes from this 24 year old vine are barrel-fermented, with a full malolactic fermentation and aged on its lees in French oak (50% new) for 11 months with weekly batononage for the first 6 months. This is a Chardonnay that will stand the test of time if you want to lay it down.
