Delheim Chardonnay Sur Lie 2007

Pale lemon yellow. Magnificent nose simply packed with lime, lees, toast, white peach and tangerine. Just a hint of sweet, spicy oak in the background. Super concentrated mouth with all the fruit in full array and joined by some dairy notes including butterscotch and then some zesty lemon. Fresh in every respect and packed with potential to develop with great majesty over four to six years after vintage. Great elegance and balance, yet very drinkable now.
