About the wine

Tasting notes

Taut and tangy chardonnay with grapefruit, gunpowder, white-fleshed peach, oyster shell and green apple flavours. The wine has a firm backbone of acidity with a dusting of bright tannins. High-energy, mouth-watering wine that needs a few years to mellow and let the flavours integrate

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.
