Pale golden yellow in colour. Ripe honeydew and hints of lemon barley combined with subtle toast and creamy vanilla from barrel stirring. A richly textured wine with flavours of ripe white peach, vanilla and toasted chestnut with seamlessly integrated French oak. A creamy, rounded palate with depth and complexity balanced with fresh crisp natural acid and a lingering finish. This Chardonnay is ready to enjoy now but the structure and natural cool climate acidity should enable confident cellaring until at least 2022.
