Wine Description

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. There is a nice balance to the acidity and minerality that enhances the freshness and elegance of this wine. Try pairing this medium-bodied Chardonnay with grilled whole fish with lemons and capers, seared scallops drizzled with lemon-infused olive oil, or roast chicken.

    The wine is refreshing, light and graceful to the palate. Bright acidity supporting rich fruit flavors and a butterfuly kiss of oak.

    This is a good Chardonnay overall but is a little harsh

    (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
