About the wine

Tasting notes

Stone fruit with underlying citrus. The oak treatment has given it roasted and toasty characters, the secondary Malolactic ferment and stirring on yeast lees has given creamy richness, with a lovely crisp acidity to finish. Alcohol 12.7%

The Grape

Chardonnay

One of the most planted, versatile and popular white varieties in the world. As a stand alone grape, Chardonnay is not the most interesting, nor complex varietal out there...but in the hands of a great winemaker it can be turned into one of the world's greatest pleasures! From the best bubbles of Champagne, to the lean, unoaked and mineral expressions of Chablis and the opulent, oaked and complex whites of Burgundy, Chardonnay is responsible for making some of the greatest expressions of white wine on the planet.
