2015 Allegra Chardonnay
95 points, Halliday Wine Companion 2020
"Fermented in new French puncheons, full mlf, 12 months in oak. Ripe peach mingling with nutty oak and matchstick-like minerality on the bouquet. A rich and almost buttery palate with citrussy acidity that tightens the wine through the finish and lingers in the aftertaste."
The Story: What does ‘Allegra’ mean to you? Related to the musical term Allegro, meaning
-The Romansh word for hello
-The name of an allergy medication.
-The name of Lord Byron’s illegitimate daughter. The name of Donatella Versace’s daughter
-The name of Ray Nadeson’s daughter.
-A wine made by Ray Nadeson. A delicious finely structured and complex Chardonnay produced with natural yeast ferments and a very light touch. A textural wine where the minerality, concentration and tactile acidity from these old vines will shine through.
For me it is the last two!! Ray
