Description

This beautiful Chardonnay was lovingly aged in new French oak, giving a toasted caramel and vanilla finish. Tropical notes of pineapple and peaches and a rich creamy mouthfeel make this an intriguing and complex wine.

Aroma shows butter, ripe red apple, tropical fruit, caramel, apricot and almonds. Good balance, good mouth-feel, lingering butter and toast finish.

Tasting Notes

Appearance: Bright, clear, straw coloured core, lighter rim.

Nose: Medium aromatic intensity. Citrus, stone fruit, banana, baking spice, and a touch of honeycomb.

Palate: Medium body, medium acid. Lemon zest, orange and grapefruit, a hint of vanilla and baking spice.

Quality: Very good quality with a medium finish. A well-balanced expression of Chardonnay. It’s drinking well now, but could cellar for 2-3 more years.

Food Pairing: Fried plantain with chipotle aioli, grilled halibut with miso sauce, steamed crab and shrimp dipped in butter, butternut squash soup, and crispy-skinned roasted chicken with lemon.
