Expert Reviews

I'm not convinced by the bouquet, which has some suggestion of reduction, but the palate makes up for that and more. It's only light-bodied, yet manages to encompass virtually every character and flavour you would expect from a 5yo chardonnay, with craggy acidity, melon, citrus of all kinds, and a dash of roasted nuts. The contribution from oak is of minimal influence or importance.
