Colour: Bright straw green colour

Bouquet: A very attractive bouquet. The wine displays youthful peach, pear and nougat perfume with subtle hints of gun smoke and vanilla bean.

Palate: The palate is textured and creamy. The subtle use of French oak is perfectly integrated providing attractive spice and a fine tannin backbone. Vibrant acidity and a hint of vanilla bean and spice are followed by a long tight citrus finish.

Winemaker’s comments: This is our 26th vintage of producing fine Chardonnay and in my mind it is our most complex. We have tweaked the style by using a strict barrel selection where only the best Burgundy barriques make the cut.

Best Drinking: 2012 - 2018
