Tasting Notes

On release the wine  is pale straw in colour.  It displays classic Chardonnay characters of peach, nectarine and fresh figs. French oak barrel fermentation and maturation gives the wine secondary aromas of cashew nuts and mixed spices. The palate has a complex mix of peach, citrus, cashew nuts, subtle truffle and spice characters throughout.   The mid palate is round and creamy but a clean citrusy acid  backbone  provides length and persistence to the wine.  The wine is  complex with no single character dominating the wine.  The flavour of the wine persists long after it has left the mouth.  The wine  will continue to reward careful cellaring for up to and possibly beyond 2026.
