(2012 Vintage) This graceful Chardonnay opens with aromas of peach, yellow apple, spice and a pleasing sweet cream vanilla note. The wine has a soft entry with citrus and light honey notes that lead to a lingering sweet lemon finish.
Watery, no acidity, nice flavor though once the shock of lack of zingyness goes away... Toby says nice finish.
Mellow and balanced, might be a little past its prime, not a long finish
heavy oaky, not buttery, bv 15

Decanter(2005 Vintage) Rating: 5/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Shy at first, it opens to reveal lovely aromas of peach, hazelnut, mineral and crème brûlée. Texturally it is silky, creamy and absolutely charming. Good acidity supports its flavours of peach, melon, spice and vanilla. At its best over the next two years
