This Chardonnay is pure class. The spicy notes of French oak sit behind aromas that suggest golden Queen peaches and dried lemon rind. On the palate the smooth texture forms a perfect framework for the stonefruit and citric flavours, with the oak and lees work adding a hint of grainy bread at the back.
Superb, vibrant citrus fruit with great concentration and energy, the fruit complexed by layers of toast, nuts and flint that build on the palate. The acidity is bracing, and provides lusciousness and liveliness, adding to the obvious potential.
