Citrus and nutty almond characters. Elegant and rich. A nice easy drinker.

This is a smooth Chardonnay with ripe peach, citrus and creamy characters. The palate is succulent and fruity, showing silky texture and nicely integrated acidity with a lingering finish. Not too big, not too light, this is a well-proportioned wine with appealing ripe flavours.

Quite a complex bouquet of seasoned and new oak laced with ripe apple, grapefruit pith and stone fruit aromas, some toasty wood scents and kitchen spice. Complex on the palate too with a mix of wood spice and toasty oak then stone fruit and tree fruit flavours, some citrus, medium+ acidity, youthful textures and moderate+ length finishing dry. Drink now and through 2022.
