90 Points - James Halliday Wine Companion
A fresh, fruity Chardonnay with notes of green apple, citrus and toasted cashew notes, and understated oak.
Colour

Pale straw green, almost limey in colour.

Tasting Notes

This Chardonnay shows intense aromas of fresh peaches, limes, grapefruit, guava, and hints of lemongrass. Oak contributes to the creamy vanilla, butterscotch, white pepper and ash notes, enhancing its complexity.

Food Matching

This Chardonnay would be best served with grilled white fish, sashimi dishes, or fresh oysters.

Cellaring

Delicious now, and has great years ahead. Serve lightly chilled.

Winemaking

Sourced from 32 years old vines planted on rocky loam soils, located on the Central eastern slopes of the Pyrenees ranges at 280 metres. The grapes were machine harvested mid-February, crushed, de-stemmed and pressed into French and Hungarian oak barrels (five years old). Fermentation took place over 15 days with selected yeast. The wine was kept on lees contact for a further three months. Finally, after five months the wine was racked and stabilised (protein and tartrate) and prepared for bottling.
