This is a fresh and easy-drinking Chardonnay. The fruit was harvested over the period of a week to give a range of varietal characters. Individual batches were cool-fermented in stainless steel on toasty French oak, lees were stirred to round out the palate. Buttery, nutty aromas are lifted by fragrant citrus; tropical flavours, subtle oak tannins and crunchy white peach roll about the mouth. Delicious. Enjoy now, with friends.
