Description

"An elegantly styled chardonnay, the bouquet shows rockmelon, peach, lemon zest and vanilla characters, followed by a beautifully rounded palate that offers pristine fruit flavours together with delicate toasty oak undertones, leading to a lingering fine finish. At its best: now to 2020" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Jun 2018

A stylish and elegant Chardonnay offering plenty of delicious flavours. The nose displaying hints of peach, nectarine and vanilla bean makes this a very appealing wine.

Gently crafted with a portion of the parcel receiving oak treatment and undergoing malolactic fermentation.  After this process, the wine was aged for 10 months in French Oak and lightly fined.  This helped produce a soft creamy palate with plenty of fullness. The flavours of clean, ripe stone-fruit, and subtle nutty-spicy oak are seamlessly interwoven with a minerality thread that draws out its length.   Drinking well now, and will continue to develop over the next few years.

Food Pairing: Well matched with steak bernaise or grilled marinated shrimp.
