The 2018 Chardonnay, Langham Estate is ultra fresh with aromas of kiwi and melon on the nose leading to a crisp, citrussy palate with just a whiff of that ‘natural/funky’ character which isn’t over the top. Some barrel ageing on lees adds little texture to the finish.
So far this 2018 vintage from Dorset vineyard Langham Estate is a one off, and sadly only available in tiny volumes. Natural yeast fermentation, unfined and unfiltered this is a bold experiment by winemaker Daniel Ham which paid dividends.
The sunny, hot 2018 vintage produced an abundance of fruit for british vineyards which led to some ultra ripe Chardonnay grapes being spare for the production of this wine…fingers crossed we get a few more similar vintages to allow Langham to repeat the experiment.
