Tasting Notes

An elegant Chardonnay with a bright straw colour and green highlights on the edge, showing first impressions of ripe apple and citrus with a hints of herb and an attractive minerality. With exceptionally good volume and complexity, this wine is steely and alive on the palate. Ending clean, with prominent grapefruit and a light spice sensation sustained by a clear acidity that refreshes the palate, concludes a rounded experience, for this well-made Chardonnay.
