"A cooler vintage has delivered a rich and complex chardonnay with such supple, fine, layered white peaches and grilled hazelnuts on the palate. Peach-sorbet-like texture that’s compact and long. Excellent purity and poise. Drink now. Screw cap."(JS)

Winery Notes:
Pale gold in colour. Seductive aromas of pear skin, grapefruit, white stone-fruit, citrus blossom and white flowers are complemented by hints of apple, lemon curd, clove spice and toasted almonds. Intense and focussed, the palate shows layer upon layer of pear and white peach, tightly wound by a deliciously creamy texture, and perfectly balanced with nectarine acidity and subtle oak nuances, for a powerful yet elegantly restrained, lingering finish.
