Always sexy oak on these Levantine wines. Another fine release is this Levantine Hill Chardonnay 2017 is too, lightly mealy with lemon butter, a coiffed palate of perfectly even fruit and some late nougat richness to compete with the acidity. Maybe a fraction too linear to be truly inspiring, but masterfully made and entirely delicious.
I always look forward to the Levantine box landing, and no dissapointments here. Best drinking: I’d wait until next years then over the next 6 odd years. 18/20, 93/100. 13.5%, $80. Levantine Hill website. Would I buy it? Out of my price range, though I’ll happily drink yours.
