Lovers of premium chardonnay, pay attention. This is a cracker of a wine at a pretty reasonable price.

Lemon green in appearance.

Aromas of peach, nectarine, lemongrass with vanilla and nutty / creamy notes.

Aromas flow through on the palate. On the palate the mouthfeel is creamy and rich with Brioche overtones. Complex flavours of grapefruit, lime zest, lemon sours, Pomelo and crunchy granny smith apples. There’s a hint of dried apricots, along with nutty baked almonds. Very well judged oak.

Long, satisfying finish with crisp, bright acids.

Love this! Will age well.
