Critic's Rating

There’s everything you want in this beautiful unoaked chardonnay matured 10 months in stainless steel tanks. The fruit aromas are expressive on the nose at first—peach, melon, pineapple—then fennel seed and mineral notes show up adding a layer of complexity. A medium-bodied, almost creamy wash of lemon Meyers and grapefruit flavours wakes up the palate, followed with orchard fruit notes and a mineral, mouth-watering, slightly chalky tasty finish. This is delicious on its own but it will be spectacular with scallop ceviche or coconut shrimps.
