Citrus Fruit, Stone Fruit, Sweet Spice
A sensational cool climate chardonnay that's serious yet charming. It's made in a clean modern style letting the fruit do all the work. Citrus, peach, grapefruit and spiced oak are at the core. It's textured and mouth-filling with excellent natural acid and a lengthy, lingering finish. A great tasting chardonnay either on its own or with your favourite chicken dish.

Appropriate varietal characters of peach and melon on the bouquet, a touch of oak unobtrusive but providing some nutty, flinty notes in the background. Relatively light in fruit weight on the palate, but fresh and energetic, finishing with crisp, green apple like acidity.
