(1998 Vintage) The 1998 Chardonnay has an attractive straw yellow appearance. The aroma is full, tropical and peachy with a creamy background indicative of the oak and lees maturation. The palate shows lovely rich Chardonnay fruit. The wine has excellent weight on the forepalate a satisfyingly rich middle and very good structure to the finish. There is excellent varietal definition and very good length.
