(2014 Vintage) This wine is fermented in 50% neutral American oak barrels and 50% in stainless steel tanks. The oak provides hints of vanilla and enhances the mouthfeel and the steel preserves the naturally vibrant fruit flavors inherent in this Chardonnay.
opened with much anticipation. medium straw colour, acid upon first taste. body seems full, but finishes with heavily pepper and a hint of licorice. Strange for a chardonnay. probably would not buy again, as would look for something a little more refreshing and lose the Pepper!
Nice apple notes and very refreshing.
