Cost: $22.90
Alcohol: 14.2%
Production: 443 cases
Date Tasted: July 14th, 2015

Tasting Notes: Opens with a gorgeous, lifted nose of sweet, white peach, apricot and tropical fruit, with aromatic notes of flowers and light spice and an undercurrent of cool minerals and citrus. Despite the lack of oak contact and barrel ageing, a richly textured palate follows the nose thanks to plenty of lees contact in the stainless steel tanks. Similar flavours adorn the palate with enhanced stonefruit and citrus notes and loads of mouth-watering, briny acidity. Enjoy this refreshing, well-made Chardonnay in its youth. Drink now-2017.
