2016 Chardonnay - Oaked image

Colour:  Light straw with pale lemony hues.

Nose:    Peach and nectarine fruit upfront with hints of roasted cashews, dusty vanilla and baked figs.

Palate:  Cantaloupe and fresh peaches supported by a moderately creamy texture with a bright and crisp savoury ginger-nut finish.

Drink:    Slightly chilled, perfect now and will age 5 years.

Residual Sugar: <0.5g per bottle

The 2016 Chardonnay spent 8 months in a combination of new and old French oak. Using partial malolactic fermentation and lees stirring, a rich, textural wine has been created that lends itself to food. This wine will easily match with seafood and white meats.
