Lifted, elegant aromas of peach and nectarine with a hint of spice, coffee, and sweet pastry.
Fresh and fruit-driven, the palate is full-bodied with a round and rich texture. Flavours of ripe stone fruit, nashi pear and a subtle spice note lead to a full, lingering finish.
Perfect for drinking immediately, this Chardonnay will be at its best over the next two to three years.

Each parcel was chosen to add complexity and fullness as well as impart balance and offer particular characteristics to the final wine. The wine is partially fermented in new and seasoned French and American oak barrels. Each barrel underwent malolactic fermentation to add depth and give fullness to the palate. After eight months barrel aging the wine was blended and carefully prepared
