Carrick Cairnmuir Terraces EBM Chardonnay


From a region producing increasingly fine, often underrated Chardonnays, this is one of the best. EBM means ‘extended barrel maturation’. Estate-grown at Bannockburn, the stylish 2016 vintage (5*) was fermented and matured for 18 months in French oak barrels (10 per cent new). Full-bodied and vibrantly fruity, with strong, citrusy, slightly peachy flavours, gently seasoned with oak, excellent complexity, and a tight, persistent finish, it’s breaking into full stride now. Certified organic.
