The 2013 growing season was characterised by almost perfect conditions for flowering and fruit set, followed by long warm summer ripening days in the season. As a result of well balanced vines, the small bunches and berries have contributed to this Chardonnay achieving full flavour ripeness with soft expressive tropical aromatics, clean crisp acid and long flowing flavour on the finish, distinctive for Chardonnay grown in this cool maritime climate.

Winery Tasting Notes
Very bright, lemon yellow, with a hint of lime.
Fragrant, lifted aromas of freshly cut white peach, floral apple blossom, lemon and lime peel fruits, with the subtle hints of mineral quartz and talc.
The palate is clean, fresh and vibrant with longer more stream-lined acid to balance the harmony between fruit flavour richness and a palate cleaning finish. The fruit is concentrated, complex and refreshing, offering a profile of minerals, white peach, apples, lemon and lime peel fruits, all tightly gathered together on the palate with the seamless fresh crisp acid and lingering tropical fruits.
This Chardonnay is made for your enjoyment, and yet versatile enough to match with an array of foods; Caesar salad; mussels with tomato and saffron sauce; grilled white fleshed fish, and other seafood dishes. Fettuccine carbonara and Mediterranean style dishes.
