Tasting Notes 1988

1988 Elston Charonnay is a chardonnay of positive lemon-gold colour with an aroma showing grapefruit and butterscotch characters.

This is a wine which will develop markedly over the next 2 – 4 years, in common with its predecessors.


Elston is named for Elston Hall in Nottinghamshire, the ancestral home of Charles Darwin’s family. Darwin’s ‘theory of natural selection’ forms the basis of modern evolutionary theory, the foundation of biology. The wyvern symbol of Elston Hall appears on the label.
