Wine Description

(From 2014 Vintage) Very interesting citrus notes are complemented with subtle hints of tropical fruit and pastries. The palate highlights the aromas associated with grapefruit, papaya and guava. This Chardonnay reveals soft notes of vanilla and nuts accompanied by a fresh acidity. A wine with good structure, medium body with a smooth texture and a juicy acidity, all of which ensures a good potential for ageing in the bottle.

Winemaker's Notes

"Greenish-yellow in colour, our Estate Chardonnay displays all of the intensity of the fruit obtained this year. Notes of pineapple, papaya, passion fruit, and quince predominate over a layer of citrus and lemon blooms, all wrapped in a layer of light toast that adds complexity. Bright acidity keeps it fresh, while a pleasingly creamy texture lingers on its elegant finish." -Winery

Light greenish-yellow in color, this is an elegant wine with notes of fresh fruit very nicely complemented by light aromas of toast and yeast. A quick swirl in the glass reveals citrusy floral notes recalling grapefruit and mandarin orange blossoms. The palate offers plenty of fruit with vibrant acidity that lends tremendous freshness that balances perfectly with its sumptuously creamy mouthfeel that results from malolactic fermentation. Medium body and volume accompanies this elegant wine.
