Our truly cool climate ensures an sublime, yet complex expression of Chardonnay that speaks with purity of time and place.
Colour: Straw green gold.
Bouquet: White florals merge with fresh pear & white stone fruits as struck match & wheat notes form a complexing contrast. Layers of lemon-lime citrus zest, fennel and fresh cut green apple add charm to the subtly savoury frame of white truffle and baker’s spice.
Palate: Intense white peach drives the front palate before being drawn taut via crisp citrus energy that merges with savoury wheatmeal notes and fine chalky structure that culminates with lingering minerality.
Cellaring: Drinking beautifully now with easily 8+ years cellaring potential.
