Classic Chardonnay. The nose beckons with appealing notes of citrus and white flowers, hints of oatmeal, but no overt oak. The intensity and complexity follows through onto the palate which contains a combination of white peach and mineral flavours. The fine acidity adds poise and focus ensuring a long, elegant finish.
:The richness and ripeness of the fruit gives flesh to the nose and melon fleshiness on the palate. The lush ripeness is balanced by fresh grapefruit and lime that crisps up the mid-palate and ensures that the fruit mix lasts well on the finish. 92 pts, Derek Smedley MW
What to eat with
:Good acidity and good balance between wood and fruit forms this wine's backbone. We would recommend pairing it with lighter dishes like fresh fish, poultry, pork and game birds. It will also suit creamy pastas. Salmon dishes are a perfect match; especially local cold smoked Salmon Trout.
